MISSOULA - A woman claims she was assaulted and had her wallet stolen after running out of gas in Missoula on Monday night.
The woman told police she ran out of gas at the intersection of Shakespeare and Sherwood streets at around midnight when two young men approached her.
At first, the woman thought the men were going to help her, but then one of the men reportedly took hold of her arm and threw her against the car and onto the ground. Then, they reportedly took her wallet from her car and removed the cash. The men then ran away, heading south on Shakespeare Street, according to police.
