Elgin woman beaten in hospital parking lot

CAMDEN, SC (WIS) - The Camden Police Department says around 1 a.m. Thursday, a 67-year-old Elgin woman was beaten in the parking lot of the Kershaw County Medical Center.

Priscilla Hammond was outside the hospital when police say Tony Stuckey walked up to the woman and pointed a gun in her back.

Stuckey told her to get in the car, but Hammond refused.

That's when police say Stuckey began to beat her with the his gun, but was stopped by a complete stranger who saw what was happening and started screaming at him to stop.

Police say Hammond was hospitalized for head injuries. The extent of her injuries is unknown.

Officials say Stuckey took Hammond's keys, stole her car and drove to Lee County to abduct a different woman.

Then, they say Thursday before noon, Lee County authorities received information that a woman had been abducted by her ex-boyfriend, who she had an order of protection against.

A relative of the woman apparently called authorities and described the vehicle they were in.

The suspect abandoned the car in northern Kershaw County.

Authorities found the vehicle, along with a gun.

Police say the car used in the abduction was linked to the victim in the hospital attack.

Stuckey was later arrested facing kidnapping and carjacking charges, but he was actually on bond on similar charges of assaulting the same ex-girlfriend last month.

Chief Joseph Floyd says Stuckey was denied bond for the Lee County incident and was currently being held in the Sumter County Detention Center.
