Columbus police are investigating the alleged rape of a 23-year-old woman Saturday morning.
The Columbus woman told police that around 5 a.m., she was walking on Forest and Floyd roads to catch a bus to work.
As she walked down Woodruff Farm Road, a car with three men inside drove up beside her. They began talking to her then drove away, said Columbus Police Lt. Lynn Joiner.
The victim then spotted the men again near the intersection of Woodruff Farm Road and Cranston Drive. She told police the three suspects stole her purse, threatened to shoot her, pulled her into a ditch and raped her.
Police brought the woman to The Medical Center for treatment.
Police have made no arrests and are still investigating, Joiner said.
