One of the men forced the woman to the ground, cut off her clothes, and began sexually assaulting her. The woman screamed and fought with her attacker and eventually both men ran away.

One of the men is described as being a white male, standing about 6’0” and weighing approximately 160 pounds. The man has brown hair and hazel eyes. There is no description of the second suspect.

Dallas police are warning Uptown residents to be alert for suspicious people in the area.

Jeanne Baxter lives in Uptown and told CBS 11 News that she too usually walks her dog alone. “It’s really scary, just because it’s a younger area so there’s a lot of people who are out late at night. You go out with friends at night and then come home and take your dog out because you’ve been gone.”

Baxter said she won’t be going out alone at night anymore.

O.J. Desouza also lives Uptown and said the attack has him concerned for those he cares about. “I have friends over and if they come over and it’s late at night — they are walking to their car alone.  I’m absolutely going to start walking them to their car, just for peace of mind.”
