      A Virginia man is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center after Myrtle Beach police say he held a woman against her will and raped her at a hotel on Ocean Boulevard Saturday.

      Jeremiah Ryan Hill, 31, is charged with Kidnapping, 1st Degree Criminal Sexual Conduct and Possession of a Weapon During the Commission of a Violent Crime, according to the Myrtle Beach police report.

      Officers responded to 1404 South Ocean Boulevard around 11:45 p.m. for a disturbance call. Police found Hill on the third floor of the hotel so intoxicated he could barely speak, the report said.

      Police found the victim inside one of the hotel rooms with several bruises and cuts to her upper body and face. She told police Hill had held her there, against her will, for more than 24 hours.

      Bond for Hill has not been set.
