ORACLE - The Pinal County Sheriff's Office is asking for the publics help in identifying suspects who kidnapped, beat and sexually assaulted a woman early Sunday morning.
Deputies say the 34-year old woman told them she was abducted from the front porch of her residence in Oracle at approximately 2 a.m. Sunday Dec. 15. She was grabbed by two white male suspects who dragged her to a black pickup truck, which was driven by a third white male suspect. The victim reported she was thrown into the bed of the pickup truck, held down and then taken to an unknown desert location, where she was brutally sexually assaulted by each suspect.
After the sexual assault, the victim was left in the desert. She walked until she got assistance from a jogger, who contacted the Pinal County Sheriff's Office. Deputies immediately responded and began the investigation, turning it over to detectives from the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
The victim said all three suspects were between 30 and 40 years old. The first suspect is described as a white male, chubby, wearing a red long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans; suspect number 2 is described as having a medium build with a mustache, wearing a light blue tee-shirt with blue jeans and New Balance athletic shoes; suspect number 3 was described as having a medium build, wearing jogging clothes, described as a Nike- brand jacket, with a reflective 'swoosh' emblem.
The victim received severe injuries as a result of the attack and sexual assaults. She was taken to a Tucson area hospital as a result of her injuries.
Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, "We are asking for help from the public to identify the suspects responsible for this brutal attack. If you have any information about this crime or think you know who the suspects might be, we are asking that you call our Criminal Investigation Bureau at 520-866-5149 or if after hours, please call our Dispatch at 520-866-5111."
