A 36-year-old woman told police she was raped Tuesday as she walked to work, St. Paul police said Thursday.
According to police spokesman Sgt. Mike Ernster, the woman was walking on Old Hudson Road near Kennard Street about 7 p.m. Tuesday when she was approached by two men dressed in dark clothing with ski masks.
One of the men talked to her in Spanish and asked for her money; she replied that she didn’t have any. She tried to scream for help, but the man told her not to say anything, Ernster said.
The other man pulled a handgun out and ripped the woman’s gold necklace from her neck, then took her wallet before fleeing.
The remaining suspect led the woman to a wooded area and pulled a knife on her before raping her.
After he ran away, the woman continued on to her workplace, where she called authorities. She was taken to Regions Hospital.
Nobody has been arrested in the case.
