A 15-year-old girl was forced into a passing car and raped in the San Gabriel Valley this weekend. The girl was walking in the 600 block of Van Wig Avenue in unincorporated Bassett on Saturday evening at about 6:30 p.m., the SGV Tribune reports. Three men in a car allegedly drove by, then parked a short distance in front of her. Two of the men got out of the car, grabbed the girl from behind as she walked by and then forced her into the car. The victim was blindfolded and sexually assaulted, then let out of the car after the men told her not to report what had happened.

The three men are described as Hispanic. The two that exited the car are described as being between 20-27 years old and between 5'9" and 6' tall. The girl was not able to provide a more detailed description of the driver. The car may be a black, 1990s Honda Civic with a partial license plate number of 2WE****.

Anyone with information should contact the L.A. County Sheriff's Industry Station at 626-330-3322. Anonymous tipsters can call L.A. Crime Stoppers at 800-222-8477.
