Two men are sought by police in connection with a sexual assault at the White Hall Commons in East Frankford on Thursday.

Around 1:30 a.m., two men riding bicycles approached a 24-year-old woman from behind, police said. When the woman turned around, one of the men grabbed her by her neck and she eventually lost consciousness.

When the woman regained consciousness, she realized that she had been sexually assaulted and that her money was missing.

Cops released surveillance footage of the woman’s attackers, and tipsters are asked to call the Special Victims Unit at 215-686-3251. Tipsters may also reach the department online or text information to PPDTIP (773847).
