Fayetteville police investigate attempted rape on Cumberland Street

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – Fayetteville police are asking for help in identifying individuals seen in surveillance images in relation to an attempted rape Tuesday night on Cumberland Street.

Just after 9 p.m., the victim was on the 400 block of Cumberland Street when someone driving a brown or gold four-door vehicle stopped and asked for directions.

As the victim was leaving the parking lot, two men in a brown or gold four-door vehicle pulled up next to her and asked if she wanted a ride, police said.

At that time, one of the men got of out the car and pushed the victim to the ground. He then began to take off the victim’s clothing, police said.
