MIAMI (CBSMiami) — North Miami Beach Police have released a sketch of one of the men accused of kidnapping and sexually battery of a woman who was picking up food at a restaurant last week.

According to police, on Thursday, the female victim was picking up food from a restaurant located at 1026 North Miami Beach Blvd.

When she returned to her car, which was parked behind the building, two black male subjects wearing black gloves and armed with handguns approached her.

Police said the men  forced her into the back seat of a van and drove away. Police describe the car as a 2004 or 2005, dark Toyota Sienna van which was missing the right front hub cap.

The men drove victim to the Oak Grove Area in North Miami Dade County, where she was, according to police, sexually assaulted by multiple subjects.

They then drove her to various locations in the North Miami- Dade County/North Miami Beach area including several fast food restaurants and gas stations, before she was dropped off near her home.

Detectives said they have no reason to believe this is connected to any other similar cases.

A similar attack happened to a woman who lived in North Miami earlier this month. The victim  lives at the Watermarke Apartments on Ne 121st street.

When she got home from work, two masked men, one with a pistol, confronted her in the parking lot.

“They forced her back in her car robbed her and then put her in the trunk and drove her around,” said Major Neal Cuevas of North Miami Police.

No one at watermark wanted to talk about what happened.

North Miami Beach Police is asking the public to come forward if they have any information on the assailants.

To give an anonymous tip, please call Miami Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward if the information leads to an arrest.
