Police in Schaumburg, Chicago, are searching for two men suspected of beating a 30-year-old woman while she was taking out her trash at an apartment complex Friday.

The woman was taking her garbage to a dumpster in an apartment complex in the 1100 block of North Knollwood Drive around 1:45 a.m. when she was confronted by two offenders who beat her, police said.

Police said she was attacked from behind, pushed to the ground, punched in the head and kicked in the ribs before she was knocked unconscious in the beating.

When she woke up, the attackers were gone, officials said.

The woman was treated at a local hospital for cuts and bruises and although she had torn clothing, police are not sure if the intent was sexual assault.

The suspects are described as mixed race or Hispanic men, between 25 and 28 years of age, police said.

The first suspect was described to be between 6-feet and 6-feet, 2-inches tall, with a medium build and was wearing blue plaid shorts and a white sleeveless T-shirt.

The second suspect was described to be between 6-feet, 3-inches and 6-feet, 6-inches tall with medium-to-heavy build and curly hair. He also had a tattoo on the right side of his neck and had a white pitbull dog with a dark spot on one eye, clipped ears and a tail. The dog may be named Dueces, according to a community alert issued by the Schaumburg Police Department.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call (847) 882-3534.
