Phoenix police are looking for two thugs who forced a 70-year-old Phoenix woman into her apartment where one of the men sexually assaulted her early yesterday morning.

According to the Phoenix Police Department, the woman was walking back to her apartment about 12:45 a.m. when she was approached by the two men.

They forced her into her apartment in the 3200 block of East Earll Drive in Phoenix. Once inside, one of the men sexually assaulted her.

The two men fled the apartment and the victim called the cops. She was taken to a Valley hospital in good condition.

Phoenix Sergeant Trent Crump says both men are Hispanic males between the ages of 25 and 30 years old. Each spoke Spanish during the assault.

One of the men is described as having a muscular build and was wearing a white t-shirt and blue shorts. The other is described as skinny and wearing a beige shirt and long khaki pants at the time of the assault.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Phoenix Police Department's Violent Crimes Bureau at 602-262-6141 or Silent Witness at 480-948-6377.
