HARRIS COUNTY, Texas — Two teenage boys have been arrested for allegedly abducting a woman from her own driveway and sexually assaulting her in Texas, officials say.
According to a news release from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, a 16-year-old juvenile and a 17-year-old were arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated sexual assault and aggravated kidnapping after an incident on Saturday.
HCSO said that deputies responded to a call in the area and found a naked woman who was hiding in the bushes. The woman told the deputies that she was abducted by two men from her own driveway. HCSO said the Violent Crime investigators were called and they took over the investigation.
