ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orange County Sheriff's Office on Friday released composite sketches of three of the four men accused in a home invasion in which a man was beaten and a woman was raped.

The attack happened around 9 p.m. Tuesday near the intersection of Clark Street and Overland Road, just south of U.S. Highway 441.

Orange County sheriff's deputies said the intruders demanded cash and electronics before things became violent.

After pistol-whipping the man, who's in his 30s, two of the assailants raped the woman, who's in her early 20s, in another room, deputies said.

Several items were stolen from the home, deputies said.

The victims were taken to a hospital and treated for their injuries, according to the Sheriff's Office.

"After the victims were released from the hospital, they met with an OCSO sketch artist," the Sheriff's Office said.

No further details were released.

Anyone with tips about the case is urged to call Crimeline at 800-423-TIPS.
