Wow... all at 10pm on a public road. I wonder if she tried vomiting on them? Perhaps she should have honked her horn or yelled for help? Thank God she didn't have a firearm... she might have shot a family member... you are 3 times more likely to do so. At least that's what the Illinois State Police claim.Woman Attacked At Intersection

ATLANTA -- Investigators say two men dragged a woman from her car on Ridgedale Drive and Pinhurst Road in Gwinnett County, then beat and sexually assaulted her.
Although she did not want to appear on camera, the woman described the horrible events she endured to Channel 2 Action News.
The victim called Channel 2 Monday night and described the assault, saying she had pulled up to a stop sign at an intersection when two young men attacked her with a baseball bat and pulled her out of the car.
The 24-year-old woman, who lives in Loganville, was driving alone about 10 p.m. Friday. Police say a man struck the woman in the head through an open window while she was stopped at a stop sign. He opened the door and got inside the car. The second man entered through the passenger side door.
She says they punched and kicked her before stuffing her into the trunk of her own car, driving her to another location and sexually assaulted her.
Neighbors say the news shocks them because it happened in such a quiet and peaceful neighborhood far off the beaten path.
The victim told Channel 2 she has bruises all over her body and a black eye but is thankful to be alive.
The two men are described as thin, black males between 16 and 20 years old. The victim says both were wearing black hoodie sweatshirts and white bandanas with a black design on them. One did have a handgun.
You are asked to contact Gwinnett County police if you have any information.
