Toronto police are warning the public of a sexual assault in the area of Meadowvale Rd and Sheppard Ave E.

A girl in her mid-teens tells police that she was walking near Roscoe Rd and Lionhead Trail last Thursday afternoon when she was approached by a man.

She says the man forced her into a parked car where another man was sitting in the back seat.

Police report that the first man got into the driver's seat while the other man sexually assaulted the girl.

The teen was able to get away and the suspects took off in the car.

One of the men is described as having a dark-black complexion, 19 to 20 years old, with wavy short hair. He was wearing a black jacket, black shoes, and dark-coloured jeans. He had a diamond in his right ear.

The second suspect is described as having a light-black complexion, 18 to 19 years old, with short black hair. He was wearing a black sweater and dark jeans.

The car is described as silver with tinted windows. It had a pair of Jamaican flag boxing gloves hanging from the rear-view mirror.
