Dallas Police are looking for three men who they say abducted a woman in Duncanville, and sexually assaulted her multiple times.
Investigators say she was getting money out of a Chase ATM in the 400 block of E. Wheatland Rd. when she was abducted, right down the street from a police station. Dallas Police got involved because the victim called 911 from the Red Bird area of the city, where the sexual assault took place.
Police are asking for the public’s help identifying the suspects, but do not have a viable description.
People living around Highway 67 and East Wheatland Rd. in Duncanville were alarmed to hear of a kidnapping, robbery and rape so close to where they live.
"That disturbs me! I don't understand this,” said area resident Kathleen Simon.
Police say the woman was at the ATM just after 5 a.m. Saturday morning, when she was abducted and robbed at gunpoint by two men. They took her roughly two miles away, to the 7200 block of American way in Dallas. That’s where, police say, the woman was sexually assaulted. A third suspect is believed to have joined up with them, and sexually assaulted the woman as well. When it was over, all three ran off and the victim contacted police.
"That's sad! I hate that it happened. I live very close. I'm in walking distance,” said Judy Williams, "I've been living in this area for 23 years; I've not had any break-ins or anything. My car has not been bothered or anything."
Kathleen Simon says this is another reminder to stay vigilant at all times, “When I come out to get cash or if I go anywhere. I don't care if I'm going home, I always check around my surroundings me, before I stop or whatever."
Police are trying to get a good description of the suspects. It is not clear if there is any video from the ATM or properties nearby.
