More Information On The Lenox Avenue Abduction

Earlier, I reported on an Oakland Tribune article on the abduction of a woman on Lenox Avenue in Adama Point. Here's more information on that crime, again from Tribune wire reports and reported on the Adams Point Yahoo! Message Board.

NEW: Woman robbed, raped in Oakland Hills
FROM STAFF REPORTS

OAKLAND - A 35-year-old woman was robbed Thursday night in Adams Point by two men
who then abducted her at gunpoint, drove her car to the Oakland hills and raped her,
police said.

Investigators stopped a juvenile driving the woman's car in West Oakland Friday afternoon and interviewed him, police said.

According to police, the woman was getting out of her car about 7:45 p.m.

Thursday on Lenox Avenue when two men confronted her. Police would not say whether
the woman lived in the area or was visiting someone.

The men took various items from the woman, who then tried to walk away, police said. But
the men pointed guns at her, demanded she get into her car with them and drove off.

At one point they stopped at an ATM, where the woman was forced to withdraw some
money, Sgt. Dan Donovan said.

The woman was then driven to the Leona Heights area, where she was sexually assaulted and raped, police said. Police would not say how many of the suspects were involved in the sexual assault.

The ordeal finally ended about 8:45 p.m. when the woman was ordered out of the car and the suspects drove away, police said.

The woman contacted nearby residents, who called police.

A description and license plate of her car were later broadcast over the police radio network.

Sgt. Paul Bernard spotted someone driving the car near 12th and Center streets Friday afternoon and stopped the vehicle. The driver, a juvenile whose age was not released, was taken into custody for questioning that continued into the night.

Police and Crime Stoppers of Oakland are offering up to $5,000 in reward money for
information leading to the arrest of suspects in the case.

Anyone with information should call police at 238-7910 or Crime Stoppers at 238-6946.
