Victoria police are investigating the report of a rape of a Victoria woman, who said she was attacked Saturday on the Lone Tree Hike and Bike Trail north of Miori Lane.

The woman, 21, was running on the trail at 9:45 p.m., when two men struck her on the head before raping her, Senior Patrol Officer David Brogger said Sunday.

"She said they both sexually assaulted her," Brogger said.

Brogger said the men fled the scene on foot after the assault, and the woman went home to call the police. She did not have a phone with her at the trail, Brogger said.

No arrests have been made and there are no leads on suspects.
