SPRING LAKE, N.C. (WNCN) – A 20-year-old man is wanted after Harnett County deputies say he kidnapped a woman from her yard and raped her.

Santez Montreal McDougald of Palamino Drive in Spring Lake is being called a “violent fugitive” following the Dec. 4 kidnapping and rape, the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office said.
