Two suspects abducted a woman and raped her at gunpoint in Hempstead last week, Nassau County police said Friday, 10 days after, in a wanted flyer seeking tips on the suspects’ whereabouts.

Roberto Rodriguez-Euceda and the second suspect, whose identity is unknown, allegedly raped the victim at 4 p.m. on July 8 “while displaying what appeared to be black semi-automatic handguns,” according to the flyer.

The suspect was described as 32 years old, 5-feet, 1-inch tall with a medium build, black hair, a beard and birth mark under his right nostril, police said. Investigators released a photo of the suspect in their request for information leading to his arrest.

The second suspect was described as a 30-year-old Hispanic man with long, dark hair in a pony tail, a bar on his left ear and a tattoo on the right forearm of two fish as well as the letters “C” and “E” on his index and middle finger of his left hand, police said. Neither a name nor photo was available for the second suspect.

The alleged assailants fled the scene in a late model two-door black pickup truck with a light color or white cover over the bed.

Authorities said that the suspects should be considered armed and dangerous.

A police spokesman said no further information was available about specifically where in Hempstead the woman was abducted.

Crime Stoppers ask anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the suspects or any information about this crime to call 1-800-244-TIPS (8477), or call Special Victims Squad detectives at 516-573-4022.
