JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police are looking for two men who reportedly attacked and robbed a woman in Arlington on Saturday night.

The victim, a 34-year old woman, told police she was walking home from the store on Arlington Place when two unknown black males approached her in a four-door silver sedan. The driver asked her if she wanted to buy drugs; she said no.

She told police the passenger got out of the vehicle, forced her into the back seat and took her purse, which contained $40 cash, her ID, and an EBT card.

She said the passenger then struck her several times in the head with a black handgun. She tried to get out, but the doors were locked. When they reached Berry Avenue and Bowlan Street, the passenger opened the door and threw her out into the roadway.

She then ran to the neighborhood screaming for help until she arrived at a home on Galveston Avenue. The victim sustained several lacerations to the top of her head and was transported to Memorial Hospital for treatment.

She described the suspects as having short hair, both in their early 20s. The driver had gold teeth.
