Police were searching Monday for two men suspected of kidnapping and brutally raping a prostitute overnight Sunday.
Police said the men allegedly kidnapped the 23-year-old prostitute from her workplace in Ramat Gan and then drove her to Palmahim Beach, where they raped and sexually assaulted her.
The woman was found lying naked on the side of a road near the coast and was picked up by someone in a passing car, which took her to the Rishon Lezion police station, where she filed a complaint.
Police immediately launched widespread searches for the men, believed to be religious after the woman said they wore kippot.
According to the woman, the men slept with her in Ramat Gan, but one of them was not pleased with the service and asked for his money back. When she refused, the two men grabbed her and threw her in their car.
They stripped her naked, beat her, sexually assaulted her, raped her and threw her out of the car near the Palmahim Beach.
