ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WIS) - Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says three men are behind bars after a weekend crime spree.

Kendalon Zarkee Curry, 21, Christian Dion Asher, 22, and Ja'Vall Radrickus Curry, 22, were taken into custody on September 29.

Ravenell said the trio "set out to terrorize residents and create havoc Saturday."

At approximately 5 a.m., the men were in a Chrysler New Yorker that slammed into a metal fence and brick post outside of a home on Bryan Drive, the sheriff said.

Before they made their getaway, they smashed up items inside the residence, beat on the victims' vehicles and two of the men are accused of pinning a female victim in a bathroom and sexually assaulting her, according to Ravenell.

The men then allegedly abandoned the Chrysler and fled in a black Dodge Charger. "A responding officer observed the vehicle and attempted a traffic stop but the driver, Chris Asher, did not pull over," Ravenell said. "Instead he recklessly drove through the streets of Orangeburg fleeing the officer, reaching speeds in the triple digits."

Fifteen minutes later, the Curry brothers and Asher fired multiple shots into a vehicle containing five passengers while it was traveling along Russell Street, Ravenell said.

All three are charged with burglary. Asher and Kendalon Curry are also charged with first degree sex/assault with intent to commit criminal sexual assault.

Bond was denied for the men on September 30.

More charges are pending.
