Sacramento police are investigating a woman's alleged sexual assault by two unknown men in the North Laguna Creek area, according to authorities.

An 18-year-old woman told police that she was walking home in the area of Franklin Boulevard and Calvine Road about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday when a man grabbed her and dragged her to a nearby bike trail, where he sexually assaulted her in some bushes, said police Sgt. Norm Leong.

The woman noticed a second man, who was going through her personal belongings while she was being assaulted, Leong said. The men then fled on foot.

The teen was taken to the UC Davis Medical Center, where she reported the assault. Hospital staff members called Sacramento police.

Leong said the investigation is ongoing. The alleged assailants were described only as two black men in their 20s, one of whom was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.

Leong reminded residents to avoid walking alone when possible and to be alert at all times.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP.
