Sexual assault at an Aurora stoplight: Check out a sketch of the suspect

The vast majority of people asking for change at intersections want, well, change.

That wasn't the case last month at East Mississippi and Peoria Street in Aurora, where two men approached a woman's car requesting some coin -- and then sexually assaulted her.

Look here to see a composite sketch of one suspect.

And below, check out more details from the Aurora Police Department about a crime that apparently punished a woman for her generosity.

The Aurora Police Department is seeking assistance from the public in identifying two suspects who are alleged to have sexually assaulted an adult woman during the late night hours of Sunday, May 9, 2010.

Between 11:30 and midnight, a woman reported that she was in her car and stopped for a red light at East Mississippi and Peoria Street. She was approached by two men who asked her for change.

The suspects physically forced the woman from her car and sexually assaulted her.

Suspect #1 is described as a tall, light skinned Black Male in his 20's. He was wearing a white hoodie, gold earrings in his right ear, and a red skull cap on his head.

Suspect #2 is described as a skinny Black male with a dark complexion, 35 to 45- years-old, with graying hair and balding on the sides. He was wearing a red shirt, dark pants, a red and white doo rag, and a gold hoop earring in his left ear. He had tattoos on his right arm.

No suspect vehicle was seen by the victim.
