MINEOLA - Two people were arraigned and remanded without bail after being charged with attempted murder, rape, assault and kidnapping.

Kenneth Bass and Julia Lopez were arrested yesterday.

According to police, Bass, Lopez and a third suspect attacked a 46-year-old woman at a home in Roosevelt about two weeks ago.

The woman was allegedly beaten, sexually abused and robbed. Officials say that Bass and Lopez put a rag over the woman?s face with poison and then covered her head in a plastic bag. The woman was then tied up and then left in the woods behind 475 Brookside Ave.

The woman managed to get free and get help. She is recovering at a hospital.

Police are still searching for the third suspect who they believe lured the woman to the house.

Both Bass and Lopez were remanded without bail and have prior criminal records.
