The 24-year-old woman was riding her bicycle on East Milwaukee, near Orleans, at about 6:20 p.m. Saturday when two men in a white, full-size van approached, said Detroit police spokesman Dontae Freeman.
After forcing her in the van, the men drove around for a short time and robbed and sexually assaulted her, Freeman said. They eventually let her go. Freeman said she ran back to the area where she was initially abducted.
The suspects are described as two black men in their 30s, both with shaved heads. One man had scars over his body, Freeman said.
The Detroit Police Department's sex crimes unit is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call the unit at 313-596-1950.
