An investigation underway in Franklin County after a St. Louis woman says she was raped by two armed men.
The woman told officers she was driving home to St. Louis from Cuba, when she became lost. When she pulled over to ask for directions, two men--one man armed with a knife, the other with a gun--approached her car. The men proceeded to sexually assault her.
The woman was treated for the assault at a hospital. Police have only a very vague description of the suspects. The woman was not able to tell authorities which direction the men drove off.
The 2013 season at Busch is now over, the focus now turns outside the stadium.

SLATE staff should start referring candidates for open positions in January. But first, you must pre-register at a SLATE office.
With Halloween just a couple of days away, St. Louis County Police want to remind residents to make it a time of treat rather than trick.
Police are urging people to remember that Halloween is a time of high pedestrian and vehicle traffic and to remain cautious and aware while enjoying any festivities.
Officials say some important tips include, driving slowly through neighborhoods and having children stay in large groups as there is safety in numbers.
Staying in lighted areas is also a safety precaution.
County police chief Tim Fitch says they are offering Halloween Safety Centers and extra patrols throughout every precinct on Halloween night.
ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A former Lindenwood University student must serve 90 days in jail, pay the school $5,000 and publicly apologize for publishing confidential student information online.
The St. Charles County prosecutor's office said Addison Richard Todd was sentenced Monday. He previously pleaded guilty to two counts of tampering with computer data and one count of tampering with a computer user. Both are misdemeanors.
In March, an anonymous source began using Twitter and a Web-based file-sharing site to release a list of more than 180 students who had been suspended the previous semester. Student phone numbers, Social Security numbers, email addresses and grade-point averages were also posted.
Todd must also pay about $1,600 in restitution to St. Charles County's cybercrime investigative unit, and is banned from any Lindenwood campuses.
