WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Law enforcement authorities say two men have been arrested in connection with an assault in northwest North Dakota.

The Williams County Sheriff’s Office says deputies on Friday found a woman covered in blood, walking along a road near Epping wearing only a T-shirt. She was taken to a Williston hospital and it was determined she had been physically and sexually assaulted by two acquaintances.

The sheriff’s office says the 21- and 22-year-old men, both of Williston, were later arrested. Formal charges haven’t been filed against them.

The 24-year-old woman had to be airlifted to Minot due to the severity of her injuries.

Both men are being held at the Williams County Corrections Center pending bond hearings. It wasn’t immediately clear if they have attorneys who could comment on their cases.
