CALEXICO — A 13-year-old girl was attacked by two men Tuesday as she walked on a residential street here near the retention basin known as Milpitas Park.
The Calexico Police Department is treating the case as an attempted rape.
Calexico police Sgt. Jim Neujahr said the girl was walking alone in the 500 block of Andrade Avenue about 6:30 p.m. when a car approached her.
Two men got out of the vehicle and forced the girl to the ground, Neujahr said based on reports from the girl and neighbors in the area.
The girl screamed, alerting neighbors who came out of their homes. Neujahr said as soon as the neighbors came out, the men got back in their car and left.
