BALTIMORE — Police investigating the rape of a 25-year-old woman in Baltimore say they want to question three men who encountered the victim before she was attacked.

Baltimore police said in a statement Monday that the woman left a bar around 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 13 and got separated from her friends.

Police say before she was attacked, the woman encountered the three men and asked them for assistance. According to the statement, she then left them and continued to walk alone when she was grabbed from behind, forced into an unknown vehicle, and raped by an unknown man.

After raping the victim, the suspect exited the vehicle and fled to an unknown location.

Police say the three men are wanted for questioning only.
