Fort Lauderdale Man Faces Multiple Charges in Abduction and Assault Case

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A 24-year-old man is confronting multiple charges in connection with the abduction and sexual assault of a woman in Fort Lauderdale.

Authorities in Fort Lauderdale confirmed on Wednesday that Louvensky Accime, hailing from Oakland Park, is facing accusations of two counts of armed robbery with a firearm, two counts of kidnapping, two counts of armed robbery involving carjacking, aggravated battery, and illegal possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

Law enforcement indicated that investigators are in the process of ongoing inquiry into the incident, and further charges are under consideration.

Accime has been in custody at Broward County Main Jail since August 15, subsequent to his arrest by the Broward Sheriff’s Office on unrelated charges. He is being held without bail.

As per Fort Lauderdale police, Accime is the individual who abducted a woman at approximately 5:20 a.m. on August 12 in the 100 block of Southwest Third Avenue in downtown Fort Lauderdale.

Authorities state that the male victim and the woman were seated in a vehicle in a parking lot when they were approached by Accime, who was armed with a firearm.

The victims reported to law enforcement that the perpetrator demanded belongings from the man. At some juncture, the man exited the vehicle, allowing the suspect to take over the driver’s seat and drive away with the woman still in the passenger seat.

Fort Lauderdale police report that around 7:30 a.m., the woman managed to dial 911. Subsequently, she was found alone in the vehicle on Interstate 95 near Oakland Park Boulevard.

“The belief is that the suspect exited the vehicle before the victim took control of the driver’s seat and drove off,” stated a press release from the FLPD. “The vehicle then became disabled on the southbound I-95.”

Investigators reveal that Accime drove around with the victim for about two hours, halting at an ATM to make withdrawals from her account and committing a sexual assault.

Law enforcement confirmed that the woman was transported by Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue to Broward Health Medical Center, where she received treatment for injuries that were not life-threatening. She was discharged from the hospital later that day.

Reporters from Local 10 News visited Accime’s residence in Oakland Park, where he resides with his father; however, no one answered the door.

Neighbors of Accime also spoke with Local 10 News, expressing their shock upon learning about the alleged crimes.

“I want to live in a safe environment, and that is horrifying,” stated Lisa Thomas, a nearby resident.

Authorities mention that another carjacking with several similarities was reported early the prior Friday in the same Himmarshee area. Nevertheless, police have verified that Accime could not have been involved in the second incident as he was already in custody.

An additional suspect was apprehended last week in connection with the second carjacking. Police recount that the suspect engaged in a chase with law enforcement in the stolen vehicle, and the pursuit concluded in Palm Beach County.
