MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — West Virginia authorities were seeking the public's help in finding three men who police believe abducted, then sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl in Martinsburg last November.

The girl was abducted in the area off Kelly Island Road near the intersection of Paynes Ford Road and driven in a Ford pickup behind the Regal Theaters off Fox Croft Avenue, where two of the males sexually assaulted her, according to a West Virginia State Police news release.

The driver of the pickup was described as a black male in his late 20s to early 30s. He was about 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed roughly 130 pounds. The man had gold upper teeth with diamonds. Police said the man has a tattoo on his right hand that began with "R" and ended with "Y," possibly Randy or Rodney. He was wearing torn black pants and a red hoodie.

One of the passengers was a white male with blond hair. His hair had a zigzag design behind the right ear. He had a tattoo of two intertwining wires on his forearm, a scruffy beard and was wearing jean shorts.

The second passenger was a white male with short dark-brown hair. He was wearing a long-sleeve blue Reebok shirt and blue jeans.

Police said the vehicle was described as a red and white older-model, full-size Ford pickup truck. The truck had tan leather or vinyl seats with a tear in the passenger's side. The victim told police that the inside of the vehicle had metal door handles.

Anyone with information may call state police at 304-267-0000, the Martinsburg Police Department at 304-264-2100 or Berkeley County Crime Solvers at 304-267-4999.
