A third suspect wanted in connection to the kidnapping and rape of a Flagler County woman has turned himself into authorities.

The Flagler County Sheriff's Office said Kurt Benjamin was booked into jail around 1 a.m. Saturday.

Investigators said the woman, who is in her early 20s, left Finn's Bar with a group of men who took her to a beach house and sexually assaulted her.

Officials identified those men as 28-year-old Daniel Goggans, 26-year-old Kurt Benjamin and 30-year-old Charles Cowart.

Deputies said the men moved the naked women into 31-year-old Frank Goggan's car and taken to a cabin in a remote part of the county, where she was attacked again.

Daniel Goggans and Cowart turned themselves in on Friday. Deputies said Frank Goggans is still at large.
