COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Two men wanted in connection with a weekend assault case were captured in Florence on Tuesday, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Dayshawn Allen, 18, and Paul Robinson, 20, have both been charged with assault and battery, armed robbery, and kidnapping.

Investigators say the pair approached a 24-year-old woman around 4 a.m. Saturday on Silo Court and struck her in the head with a weapon before forcing her back inside her car.

Deputies say the victim managed to escape the two men by jumping out of a moving vehicle.

Sheriff Leon Lott said Allen and Robinson will face additional charges with the Florence Police Department and added that additional arrests could be forthcoming in this case.

Allen and Robinson will be transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
