Multiple suspects broke into a Northwest D.C. home and sexually assaulted the woman inside before stealing a car and other property early Friday morning, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

They broke into the home on Girard Street just before 3 a.m., police said. A woman was in bed when she was awakened by someone sexually assaulting her, police said. A second person also forced a sex act on the woman.

In addition to a white Toyota Prius belonging to another woman who lives in the home, a wallet, a cellphone, an iPad and a bottle of pills were taken.

Police urgently searched Friday for the Prius. It was spotted Friday evening in Columbia Heights. Police pursued it until it crashed into a parked car in the 1700 block of Euclid Street NW in Adams Morgan.

Police have arrested two boys, ages 14 and 16, and charged them with burglary and theft.

The sexual assault case remains open.
