The Idaho Falls Police Department is investigating a possible aggravated assault on a woman who says she was grabbed at gunpoint and forced into a car.

The victim claims the attack happened at the former Idaho Falls Wal-Mart building in the early morning hours on Monday.

The 19-year-old deaf woman explained to police she was in town visiting her boyfriend. Before traveling home to Malad, she stopped to stretch. That's when she says two Hispanic men in their 20's approached her, put a gun to her head, and forced her into their car. She was able to escape.

Police are looking for a black 4-door 1990's Honda Civic with tinted windows and Idaho license plates. Both suspects are Hispanic men in their early 20's. Contact the Idaho Falls Police Department if you have any information.
