A black woman, whose identity has not been made public, was kidnaped and raped by a white supremacist, according to WKRG News.


Joshua Edwards, a Florida resident, belongs to the Aryan Brotherhood gang, according to the sheriff's office.

The FBI has identified the Aryan Brotherhood as a "violent white supremacist gang."

While at a Circle K gas station, "Edwards abducted the woman and told her 'get in the car and stay quiet,'" the report said.

Edwards then forced the victim to take narcotics and forced her to drive while holding her at gunpoint.

"The victim told deputies that Edwards held a gun to her and made her drive. At times during the alleged abduction. Edwards changed places with the victim and drove her into Lillian, Alabama and then back into Escambia County," the report said.

Edwards was charged with "sexual battery, two counts of carjacking, armed kidnapping, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during a felony," according to the report.

His bond was set at $6 million and he is scheduled to appear in court on April 11.
