Authorities are trying to find a pair of suspects who kidnapped and raped a mother who was forced to leave her two young children behind in a parking lot.Around 1:40am on September 25, a 20-year old mother of two arrived at the apartment of a relative in the 500 block of Richey Street in Pasadena. As she was about to get her two young children out of the vehicle, she was approached by a man who initiated a vague verbal exchange. The man then physically forced the victim into a white extended cab pick-up truck which was being driven by another man. The mother was forced to leave her children alone in her vehicle in the apartment project parking lot.

The victim was taken to the area of 10200 East Freeway and Mercury Drive in Houston. During the drive there, she was sexually assaulted by each of the two suspects. Following the attack, the victim was pushed out of the vehicle.

The woman ran to a hotel in the area where she came upon a DPS Trooper, who assisted her by alerting the Houston Police Department. The victim suffered a cut on her forehead and multiple bruises to her face and neck.

Houston police called Pasadena police, who immediately went to the apartment project on Richey and found the victim's vehicle and her childrenm who were unharmed.

The first suspect is described as a white male in his mid 30s, 5'10, with a goatee and a medium build. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark blue pants similar to "Dickies" brand trousers.

The second suspect is described as a black male in his mid 20s with military style close cut hair, medium height and build.

The suspects were driving a white mid-to-late 90s model Chevrolet extended cab pick-up truck with a black or dark colored right front quarter panel. The interior was dirty and contained a variety of equipment and tools.
