MAYFAIR (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are investigating a sexual assault in the Mayfair section.

The incident happened around 10 p.m. on Sunday, April 30 in the 4000 block of Decatur Street.

According to police, the 45-year-old woman was walking to the nearby 7-Eleven store when she passed a group of teens, who made comments to her.

Two of the males then approached her and pulled her into a driveway, where one of the suspects sexually assaulted her.

The two then ran from the scene in an unknown direction.

The suspect who sexually assaulted the woman is described as a black male standing 6'1" tall. Police say he had a muscular build, a dark complexion, and was wearing a blue and white hooded jacket.

The second suspect is described as a black male standing about 5'3" tall with a small/thin build. He was clean shaven and wore a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with white lettering across the front.

Police say surveillance images released earlier Tuesday may not be of the suspects. Those images have been removed from this story.

Anyone with information is asked to contact 911, call police at 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
