State police are investigating after a woman was abducted in Marlborough before she was beaten and robbed and later released in Berlin.
Investigators said the incident took place Saturday evening when a 64-year-old woman left a business in Marlborough and was entering her parked vehicle as two males approached her and demanded money. The suspects, who were wearing face coverings, abducted the woman before assaulting and robbing her, state police said.
The victim was then driven by the assailants to Berlin, where she was released. She was later taken to an area hospital to be treated for injuries that were described as serious but not life-threatening.
The investigation is “active and ongoing,” state police said Sunday. They have not provided any update as to whether the suspects have been identified or taken into custody.
“The Connecticut State Police would like to remind citizens to be aware of their surroundings and to immediately report any suspicious activity,” state police wrote in a statement.
