On Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office investigated a reported sexual assault. The 34-year-old female victim reported that she was abducted from the front porch of her residence in Oracle at approximately 2 a.m. She was grabbed by two white male suspects who dragged her to a black pickup truck which was then driven by a third white male suspect.
The victim reported she was thrown into the bed of the pickup truck, held down and then driven 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. The victim walked until she was able to obtain assistance from a jogger, who contacted the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies immediately responded and began the investigation until it was turned over to detectives from our 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 two is described as having a medium build with a mustache, was wearing a light blue t-shirt with blue jeans and New Balance athletic shoes; suspect number three 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 transported to a Tucson area hospital as a result of her injuries.
