Two men allegedly kidnapped a woman at knifepoint in San Francisco’s Mission District on Sunday evening and attempted to rape her, but she escaped shortly afterward, a police spokesman said today. The kidnapping occurred at about 5 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of 18th and Lexington streets, police Sgt. Mike Andraychak said. A 22-year-old woman was approached by a man who pulled out a knife and forced her into a vehicle driven by another man, Andraychak said. The suspects drove the victim down along the coastal region of San Mateo County, where they attempted to rape her before she was somehow able to escape from the truck and call 911, Andraychak said.
San Francisco police ended up responding to a hospital in San Mateo County where the victim was taken for an investigation into the attempted rape. The woman was uninjured in the kidnapping, police said. The suspects remain outstanding and are described as Hispanic men between 35 and 40 years old who were driving a green Toyota Tundra truck, Andraychak said. A more detailed suspect description was not immediately available, he said.
