Two short men, one thin and one stocky, were the subject of a Buffalo police investigation for raping and robbing a 33-year-old Prospect Avenue woman they grabbed from behind as she was walking on Niagara Street near the Shoreline apartments late Sunday.

The victim told police the men stole her cellphone and purse and the thin suspect raped her before she fled. The woman was treated as a rape victim at the Erie County Medical Center later on Sunday.

The victim described her attackers as being a man wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans and another man wearing a red bandana and blue jeans.
