Sacramento police seek help to identify rape suspects

From Dixie Reid:

sacrapesuspect.jpgSacramento police are asking for the public's help in finding three men suspected in a Nov. 22 rape.

The trio is believed to have forced a woman, who was walking along Meadowview Road at 2 a.m., into their vehicle. They then took her to another location, where they sexually assaulted her.

The descriptions of the suspects, all believed to be East Indian, are:

The driver is in his late 20s, about 5-foot-7 and weighing 230 pounds with a thick build. His messy black hair was heavily gelled, and he wore a tan long-sleeve shirt and black pants.

The second suspect is 21-22 years old, also 5-foot-7 and weighing 150 pounds. He has short hair and dark rings around his eyes. He wore a long black leather coat.

The final suspect is older, in his late 30s, standing 5-foot-9. He sat in the back seat and wore a white T-shirt and blue jeans.

The suspects were in a red 1990s Ford Mustang with 20-inch rims and white around the wheel wells. The interior is a dark gray. A Mustang emblem is on the dashboard.

Anyone with information can call Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES); enter SACTIP, followed by the tip information.
