YOUNGSTOWN Woman reports rape by 2 men

YOUNGSTOWN -- Police are looking for two men suspected of kidnapping and raping a 31-year-old city woman in a van.
The North Side woman told police she was walking in the 500 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard at 8 p.m. Thursday when two men in a gray full-size van offered her a ride. The woman told police she accepted the offer but once she was inside the van the men headed in the opposite direction.
The woman objected, but one man pulled out a hunting-style knife.
Reports say the woman was taken to a secluded street on the West Side, where she was repeatedly raped by both men for more than two hours.
The woman told police she was eventually let out of the van on the Madison Avenue Expressway at Martin Luther King Boulevard. From there, she walked to a relative's house and to St. Elizabeth Health Center in the morning.
Descriptions: One man is described as in his 30s and weighing between 150 and 200 pounds. He wore a red baseball cap. The other man is in his 20s and weighs between 140 and 160 pounds.
Both are white.
The van has a design on the side. The interior is dark cloth and the rear seats recline.
