North Miami Beach police detectives are looking for at least two men they say abducted a woman at gunpoint and then sexually assaulted her before dropping her off at her home.

Police say the woman was picking up take-out food from a restaurant at 1026 North Miami Beach Blvd. when she was approached by the men she walked to her car parked in the back of the building.

According to police, the two men, wearing black gloves and armed with handguns, forced her into the back seat of a vehicle and drove to the Oak Grove Area in North Miami-Dade County, where she was sexually assaulted by multiple subjects.

The woman was then taken to several fast food restaurants and gas stations in North Miami-Dade county and North Miami Beach area before she was dropped off near her home, according to surveillance video.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-8477. Detective N. Morrison can also be reached at 305-949-5500.
