The Tulsa Police Department is working to identify two sexual assault suspects.
Police say the suspects in the two attached sketches assaulted her on December 21st. Police say the victim told them she was walking east near Pine St. and N. Sheridan around 2:40 am when the men started calling out to her but she kept walking and tried to avoid them.
The victim told police one of the men grabbed her from behind and pushed her into a ditch, she said he then used her necklace to choke her until she passed out. Police say the first suspect then assaulted her while the second man kept watch and said he was “next.”
Police say the victim heard a car drive up and someone in the car yelled at the suspects to “stop” and the men then ran from the victim, leaving her in the ditch. The person that stopped the attack has not been identified.
The Charlie Brown Day Care Center is across the street from where the sexual assault happened. Employees there are on alert now that they know those two men are on the loose.
"That’s very scary because you don't know if you are going to fear for your life, if they are going to kill you, if you are going to see your family again," said Deanna White. White has been working at the day care for 24 years. "I am going to keep my eyes pealed and stay alert."
Donisha Thompson gets to the center before the sun rises.
"I leave at 5:00 in the morning so I really have to watch my surroundings when I get to my car in the morning, especially my kids," said Thompson. "I need to start packing something, maybe pepper spray, because you never know when someone could be at your car- open your car and they could be in your back seat, so yes, it’s dangerous."
Police want anyone who witnessed this assault to contact the Tulsa Police Department to provide a statement.
The Tulsa Police Sex Crimes Unit is also asking anyone with information regarding potential suspects in this crime to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
