A woman was fighting for her life after two men kidnapped her, police said. She may have also been sexually assaulted.
It started at Club Therapy in downtown Miami and ended at a Denny's in North Miami Beach. It was a terrifying ride down I-95 for one South Florida woman in the early morning hours of Monday, March 18.
"This young lady is walking to her car where she gets rushed by two black males," Miami Police Sgt. Freddie Cruz II said. "They force her into her own vehicle. One drives while the other one forces her into the back seat. She's fighting for her life."
For more than 10 miles, one man drove the victim's car north on I-95 while the other man was in the backseat with the woman – trying to sexually assault her, Cruz said.
"The black male that's sitting in the backseat with her chokes her out," he said. "She loses consciousness. She's going in and out of consciousness."
Before leaving the woman stranded near 183rd Street in North Miami Beach, the men ransacked her car and made off with her belongings. According to police, one of them left her with these words: "We only wanted a ride."
Miami Police said they do not have a good description of the men at all. It's very vague: two black men around 19 or 20 years old, one was wearing a white shirt, another had braids and was wearing a black shirt.
A reward of up to $1,000 will be given to anyone who provides information leading to the identification or arrest of the suspects. Miami Police urged anyone with information to call their Special Victims Unit at 305-603-6300, or to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers anonymously at 305-471-TIPS.
