— Sheriff's Deputies need help in finding the men who raped a woman after forcing their way into her car.

It happened at about 2 o'clock Saturday morning.

Authorities say three men made a woman stop her car near the Red Hill community just off Buffalo Road. Then the men got into her car and drove her to a dirt path near New Baptist Church.

Detective Jason Barbour said that one white male and one black male jumped out of a truck that was following the woman, and forced their way into her car.

The suspects were riding in a small silver truck that had a burgundy colored roof top.

Two of the suspects are white men, one has dark brown hair with a scar on his right cheek, the other has acne marks on his face.

The other suspect is described as a heavyset black man.

If you have any information about the case, you are urged to call Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies at (919) 989-5000, or Crime Stoppers at (919) 934-TIPS (934-8477).
