With hopes the public can help crack a cold case, Montgomery County police released surveillance photos of two males they think were involved in a kidnapping and sexual assault that happened in Rockville and Wheaton.
Police said that on April 15, 2007, three males robbed and apprehended an 18-year-old woman who was walking in Wheaton, near Georgia Avenue and Randolph Road.
After stealing her wallet, the males the drove the woman to the 114500 block of Avery Road in Rockville, where she was sexually assaulted inside of the vehicle, according to police.
A passing citizen later saw the woman walking on Avery Road, toward Southlawn Lane, and called the police.
