CONWAY, S.C. —

A South Carolina man accused of rape was brutally beaten by the victim’s boyfriend, according to multiple reports.

William Mattson, 52, was charged with criminal sexual conduct after police were called to a home in Conway early Thursday morning.

A man apparently found the suspect in a bedroom on top of his girlfriend.
