A 28-year-old woman told police Friday she was raped early that morning after three men picked her up while she was walking on West Broad Street near Rocksprings Street, Athens-Clarke police said.
The men blindfolded the woman when she got into the silver SUV and the four of them drove around for a while, the woman said, according to a police report. They drove her to an unknown location and then each of them sexually assaulted her, she told police.
After the attack, the victim said, she was released and was able to walk to Athens Regional Medical Center, police said.
