Sheriff's deputies in Pinal County are searching for three suspects in connection with a sexual assault that sent a 34-year-old woman to a hospital.
The victim told police she was abducted by two men and dragged to a black pickup truck from the front porch of her home in Oracle around 2 a.m. Sunday. The truck was driven by a third suspect.
She said she was thrown into the truck bed, held down and driven to an unknown desert location where she was brutally sexually assaulted by each suspect, according to PCSO reports.
The victim stated she was left in the desert and walked until she came across a jogger, who called the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, according to a news release. She was airlifted to the hospital with severe injuries.
Deputies said the suspects are between 30 and 40 years old. The first man was described as chubby and was last seen wearing a red long-sleeve shirt and blue jeans. The second man was described as having a medium build, a mustache and wearing a light blue T-shirt, blue jeans and New Balance athletic shoes. The third man was described as having a medium build and wearing jogging clothes with a reflective swoosh emblem, similar to the Nike symbol, according to authorities.
Anyone with information is urged to call 911, 88-CRIME or the PCSO's Criminal Investigation Bureau at (520) 866-5149.
