The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command announced Friday night it is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for the alleged kidnapping and rape of a Fort Benning woman Wednesday.

If you know something about this matter, call the Fort Benning CID Office at 706-575-8736.

"Those wishing to remain anonymous will be honored to the degree allowable under the law, and the

information will also be held in the strictest confidence allowable under the law," said a news release from the U.S. Army CID in Quantico, Va.

As the Ledger-Enquirer previously reported, another CID news release earlier Friday described the following incident:

Two men kidnapped and sexually assaulted a Fort Benning woman Wednesday morning after her car broke down on the post's 101st Airborne Road. The two men were driving a white, four-door pickup truck when they abducted the woman around 10 a.m. and then sexually assaulted her. It was unclear where the assault took place, but the men were last seen in the vicinity of Sunshine Road. The victim was left at the scene.

One assailant is described as a bald, white man in his 20s, about 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, with a scar on the left side of his face. The other is described as a white man in his 30s, about 5-foot-9 and 210 pounds. He was wearing a faded baseball cap with a Chevron Oil logo on it.
