Rochester Police are searching for three men they say attacked a woman before stealing several items including her car. It happened in a popular area of Rochester around midnight.

Rochester Police tell us the woman was walking to her apartment on South Goodman Street when she was approached by the men who took several items including her car keys and then took off in her car.

Today we heard from people who are concerned and looking over their shoulders.

“(I) always have the dogs with my when I'm out of the house because these two will protect me.” As Bree Dicicco walks around the neighborhood, she says she doesn't encounter sketchy situations but today she's bringing out the pepper spray. “I will definitely carry that more now if I'm out that late.”

Last night, police say a 24-year-old woman was tackled outside her apartment complex on South Goodman Street by three men who got her keys and took off in her car.

Dicicco’s boyfriend showed up right after last night's attack and said the woman appeared to be okay and police say she wasn't injured but it still left him concerned. “He just said you're not allowed to leave the house after 10:30 p.m. anymore....not that I ever really do but he was worried for my safety that something could happen right outside. We live across the street. It's unfortunate and I just really hope that girl is okay and this doesn't continue to happen.”

Investigators need your help finding the car. It’s a grey 2006 Subaru Legacy with license plate GKG 1548.
