RCSD Arrests Mouad Bendahmane for CSC and Kidnapping 

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced the arrest of Mouad Bendahmane (DOB: 07/03/1984) charged with criminal sexual conduct 1st degree and kidnapping. Bendahmane turned himself into investigators on Monday, January 08, 2018.

On October 28, 2017, Bendahmane agreed to give the victim a ride home from the Five Points area, but instead drove the victim to his residence on Twin Oaks Circle and sexually assaulted her. Bendahmane then drove the victim to her home and advised the victim’s friends that he was an Uber driver and then fled the location. 

Investigators were able to obtain Bendahmane’s vehicle information that assisted with his identity in the case. RCSD is currently looking into other sexual assault cases involving Bendahmane and additional charges may be forthcoming.
