A Jacksonville man has been accused of kidnapping a 21-year-old. That's according to court documents.

Darren Lycell Skinner, 33, of Ramsey Drive in Jacksonville, was charged with first degree kidnapping, felony conspiracy, simple assault, and communicating threats.  Skinner is scheduled to have a First Appearance in Onslow County District Court on Monday.

Skinner allegedly conspired with another man to kidnap, assault with a deadly weapon, and sexually assault the 21-year-old on June 16th.  Court documents state that the victim was seriously injured and sexually assaulted. 

Skinner, and the other man, allegedly told the victim that "if she was to tell anyone the incident, they would kill her."
