The woman was stopped at the intersection of 30th Avenue East and U.S. 301 around 8:40 p.m. when she was approached by two men who each pointed "an unknown type black sidearm" and pulled on the two front door handles, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.
The victim immediately accelerated away.
The suspects are described as two men between 18 and 25 years old and about 5-foot-7, wearing black jackets.
