Platteville police are investigating a reported assault in the parking lot at Pizzeria Uno, 175 W. Business 151, Friday between 9 and 11 p.m.

A 19-year-old woman told police she was assaulted by two Hispanic men who attempted to force a rag into her mouth to prevent her from screaming while they tried to force her into a nearby vehicle. The victim screamed for help, and she was able to free herself and run from the area, police said.

The woman suffered bruises from the attack, which was reported to police Saturday morning.

The first suspect is described as shorter in stature with black hair, while the second suspect was taller than the first, with muscular arms and numerous tattoos on his arms.

Anyone with information on the attack is asked to call police, 348-2313.
