CLEVELAND (WJW) -- Cleveland police are looking for a teen who they said carjacked and sexually assaulted a woman as she was leaving a boxing class.

It reportedly happened near West 29th Street and Church Avenue in the Hingetown section of Ohio city on the west side around 8 p.m. Thursday.

Investigators said while the woman was putting items in her car, a male, approximately 16 to 19 years old, with a hoodie pulled tight, approached her and demanded money. He then forced her into the back seat and sexually assaulted her. The suspect then took off with her car, which had two cellphones inside. He was said to be armed with a gun.

The vehicle was recovered Friday night after it was spotted by officers. Police said the suspects inside ran away on foot.

Anyone who has any information on the case is asked to call the Cleveland Police Department at 216-623-5000.
