And now, DeJesus is now the victim of another violent crime after at least two male suspects on Thursday pulled in front of her car while she was driving, forced a gun to her head and ordered her to get out of her vehicle, Fox 8 Cleveland first reported, citing local law enforcement and the FBI.

The Cleveland Division of Police is seeking the public’s help to locate the vehicle, which is believed to be a silver 2015 Toyota Camry, and suspects, according to a blog post.
