PALM COAST, Fla. -- The Flagler County Sheriff's Office needs the public's assistance to find four men who are wanted in connection with the sexual assault that occurred in March.

Daniel Goggans, 28, of Palm Coast, Kurt Benjamin, 26, of Palm Coast and Charles Larkin Cowart, 30, of Bunnell, are wanted on outstanding Flagler County felony warrants charging them with sexual battery and kidnapping.
Frank Goggans, 31, of Palm Coast is charged with false imprisonment.

Police said a woman had been drinking with a friend at Finn's Bar on March 20 when she began talking with two men, one who was identified by witnesses as Cowart. Witnesses said the woman, who detectives say was intoxicated, left the bar with the two men and wound up on the beach where she was sexually battered by Daniel Goggans, Benjamin and Cowart. The men then transported the woman to a hunting cabin in West Flagler County. Frank Goggans is accused of placing the woman in his vehicle against her will and transporting her to the cabin.
Daniel Goggans, Benjamin and Cowart are charged with assisting Frank with transporting the victim.
Detectives said Cowart drove the woman home the next afternoon and admitted to having sex with her. 

Anyone who has information on any for the four is asked to call the Flagler County Sheriff's Office at (386) 313-4911.
