The search is on for suspects --- after a Lafayette woman was sexually assaulted and robbed early this morning at an apartment complex on Belle Fontaine Drive around 1 a.m. But she wasn't the only victim in the incident. The female victim and a male were standing between two buildings at this apartment complex, when they were approached by two armed males.
All police have are the fuzzy surveillance pictures to work with now. They say the suspects demanded the victims to turn over their cell phones and wallets. After that the suspects sexually assaulted the woman. As they were doing that, a third victim walked into the scene, and was immediately ordered to the ground. The suspects took that victims' wallet and cell phone and later fled the scene.
Police say that the suspects were of medium build and one had dread-locks. Detectives are asking anyone with information to call Lafayette Police or crime stoppers.
