MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A reported sexual assault incident that happened last month in Hickory Hill is one of several kidnapping and rape charges in the last few weeks. 

Early Saturday morning police arrested Koyat Floyd for allegedly kidnapping a 16-year-old in the 200 block of Georgia Avenue, near downtown Memphis. 

According to the affidavit, Floyd grabbed the victim as she walked down the street and dragged her to a nearby field, where he then held at her at knife point and forced her to have sex with him in a nearby field.

The victim positively identified Floyd in a photo line up and police apprehended him after a failed flee attempt. 

Twenty-year-old Silvia Humphrey says it makes her more mindful.

"It's actually sad because it's dangerous and young people need to be careful," said Humphrey. "I don't walk. I have a car, but when I get in my car I always lock my doors because I know it's dangerous out here. People don't care what they're doing so you have to be careful."
