ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Three men face several charges in connection to the alleged kidnapping and rape of a woman outside a south St. Louis bar.

Lawrence Brandon, Antoin Brewer and Antonieo Deobra were each charged with kidnapping, two counts of forcible rape, seven counts of armed criminal action, two counts of forcible sodomy, two counts of stealing a motor vehicle and two counts of robbery.

The 52 year-old victim told authorities she was leaving The Silver Lining bar in the 3700 block of Delor around 11:30 p.m. Monday when the three suspects approached and threw her into the backseat of her car.

The victim said she was repeatedly raped, but was able to escape about four hours later when the suspects stopped for gas in the 1300 block of Gravois.
