Authorities have made an arrest in the kidnapping of a 4-month-old in Holly Hill.

Rondell Robert Washington was arraigned today on charges including burglary, kidnapping, and assault.

Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says Washington along with six other unknown individuals entered a home on Catamount Rd last week and kidnapped a 4-month-old. 

One of the gunmen struck a 52 year old woman in the head with a gun while she was protecting a child.

Renee Gilliard wasn't home at the time but told WCBD-TV she was
horrified to learn the only thing the intruders found was her baby
girl.

The baby was gone for about two hours before she was found in
Berkeley County by a passerby who saw the criminals discard the child
on the side of the road.

Gilliard said she doesn't know who the men are but is thankful her baby wasn't hurt or killed.
