Hughes says the 56-year-old woman was unconscious for a while during the abduction, so she isn’t able to help them with a lot of details of what happened to her.  She was taken to the hospital on Thursday morning as a precautionary measure.

Meanwhile, Hughes says you need to be cautious and aware of your surroundings.

The woman, who is only being identified as being from the St. Cloud metro area, went into McDonalds in Sartell at about 9:40 p.m. on Wednesday, when she got back into her vehicle a masked man was waiting for her in the back seat.  That man and a second masked man assaulted her and choked her until she was unconscious.  They pushed her out of the car and she was able to get to the Coborn’s in Sauk Rapids to call for help.  The vehicle was later found by Sauk Rapids police abandoned and burned.
