PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Oregon State Police investigators are looking for two men accused of kidnapping a woman whose car broke down on the side of rural highway in Umatilla County.

Composite sketches have been released in hopes that someone will recognize the men.

A police spokesman says early last Sunday evening a 21-year-old woman was in her disabled vehicle along Highway 730, about six miles east of Highway 395, when two men stopped to help.

Police said the suspects took the woman by force into their dark colored sport utility vehicle.

They traveled an unknown distance before she was able to escape and hide from the suspects in nearby brush off the highway. The woman received minor injuries during the incident.

Both of the suspects spoke English and Spanish.  One is described as being about to six feet tall and 220 pounds.  The other suspect was 5'10" tall, his weight was unknown. 

In the rear window of their vehicle was a sticker with individual white letters, which spelled out an unknown Hispanic name or word. The letters are estimated to be about three or four inches high, and the word is about a foot in length across the rear window.

Detectives urge anyone with information to identify the suspects to call Detective Gunter of the Oregon State Police.
