Man arrested, accused of kidnapping and raping woman

- Obtravies Watkins faced a judge Wednesday in Volusia County after deputies say he took a woman on a two county trip of horrors, raping her in vacant areas in Volusia and Flagler.

Naked, beaten, and bloody the woman ran out of these woods on Old Kings Road in Ormond Beach early Monday morning into the path of motorists who stopped to help. They called 911.

One man told an operator, "We just found her wandering on the side of the road. She looks like she's hurt.This is horrible. oh my gosh, it caught me off guard."

Deputies say Obtavies Watkins met the woman on US 1 in Daytona Beach, got her into his car and wouldn't let her go.

Flagler Sheriff Rick Staly said, "The woman reported being picked up in Daytona, raped twice while driving around, taken to Flagler and raped."

Deputies were able to track down Watkins with the help of tag readers around Daytona Beach. They pulled him over for a traffic stop and arrested him.
