Two women tell Seattle Police they were attacked by two men while they were walking near 97th and Dayton at about 1 a.m. One woman was taken by the men, but later found elsewhere in North Seattle and taken to the hospital, according to police.

From the Seattle Police Blotter:

On 6/21/11, just shortly before 1:00 a.m., officers responded to the 9700 block of Dayton Ave N. to investigate an abduction. Officers contacted a 19-year-old female and she stated the following: She and a friend, a 20-year-old female were walking in the 9700 block of Dayton Av N just shortly before 1 a.m. The pair was walking when 2 hispanic males appeared from a darkened corner of the street.

Suspect 1, grabbed the 20-yr-old victim and proceeded to pull her into the darkened area. Suspect 2 grabbed the 19-yr-old victim/witness and also attempted to pull her into the darkened area however, she fought him away.

Both suspects then focused their efforts on the 20-year-old victim and pulled her approximately 30 feet to a parked vehicle. They fled the scene S/B on Dayton.

The vehicle is described as a light colored, newer sedan with Washington plates. The license plate may contain the letters/number L,R and the number 4.

The suspects are described as 2 hispanic males in their 20′s. Suspect 1 was armed with a handgun and wore a mask or face covering.

CSI and Homicide responded and processed the scene.

Update* Victim has been located. She was found at a location in North Seattle and was taken to an area hospital as a precaution.

And if anyone was wondering, that’s why at least one news helicopter was over the area at about 6 a.m.
