ORACLE, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
A relatively well-kept, nondescript house behind Oracle Park is where it all started Sunday, around 2 am.
Authorities say three men in black pickup pulled up, two of whom reportedly forced their way into the front porch area and grabbed a 34-year-old woman inside.
They then dragged her outside and held her down in the bed of the truck.
From there, the situation only got that much worse.
That's because the victim is a single mother, we're told, who either has difficulty hearing or is completely deaf.
We don't know for sure who was home at the time of the abduction.
Though we did learn from the victim's family...
"Is she your daughter?" KOLD asked a man who answered the front door Tuesday.
"No, she's my granddaughter," he said, peering through the screen. "I don't want to say more than that."
We're told the woman only recently moved to Oracle with her children after a painful separation or divorce.
"Yes...that's true," her grandfather said.
"Are you able to tell me if the young lady is doing any better?"
"Um, not really because I haven't talked to the doctor," he said.
Doctors who continue to care for the woman in Tucson.
Due to severity of her injuries, she had to be airlifted to a local hospital Sunday after being found by a jogger south of Oracle.
This after being dumped in the desert, naked and bleeding, by the people who did this to her.
Authorities say each suspect is a white man between 30 and 40 years of age.
Suspect number one is described as chubby and wearing a red, long-sleeve shirt.
Suspect number two has a medium build and mustache and was last seen wearing a light blue T-shirt and New Balance brand tennis shoes.
Suspect number three also has a medium build and was reportedly wearing jogging gear, specifically a Nike jacket with a reflective swoosh emblem..
If you have any information about the case, please call the Pinal County Sheriff's Department at 520-866-5149.
After hours, you can call Dispatch at 520-866-5111.
Or, if you wish to remain anonymous, you can always call 88-CRIME.
