The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office is charging Cedric Maurice King, 22, of 685 Barton's Landing, and Clifton Lamar Hayes, 27, of 1148 Nan St., with first-degree forcible sex offense, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and assault on a female.

King and Hayes were arrested Dec. 16 and charged with kidnapping a woman at gunpoint from the Eutaw Village Shopping Center parking lot and raping and robbing her in a rural part of the county. They also were charged with picking up two women, driving them to a wooded area of the county and forcing them to perform sexual acts.

Both men remain in the Cumberland County jail under $2.5 million bonds.
