The first man grabbed the victim from behind and placed a hard object into the victim's side. The second man asked for cash before demanding the victim perform a sexual act.

Police described both suspects as black men in their late teens or early 20s. The first man is 5-foot-8 and weighs about 130-150 pounds. He was wearing a black jacket, blue jeans and Nike gym shoes. The second suspect is 6-feet tall and weighs about 165 pounds. He wore a blue hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.
