4 men accused of sexually assaulting woman leaving gas station


Highlights

The woman was walking to a nearby apartment at the time, police said.

Atlanta police released sketches Monday of three of the four men they say sexually assaulted a woman in southeast Atlanta. 

The men followed a 34-year-old woman as she left a gas station Sept. 28 around 2 a.m., police told Channel 2 Action News. The men allegedly approached the woman on Hill Street as she was walking to a nearby apartment, the news station reported. 

Investigators don’t think the victim knew the men, believed to be between 15 and 20 years old with ties to Decatur. 

Karl Anderson, who lives in the area of the incident, told Channel 2 that two of the men look familiar but he doesn't remember when he last saw them.

"It worries me for my wife and girls," he told Channel 2.
