A 19-year-old Gainesville woman was robbed Monday morning on Aviation Boulevard by three men with a screwdriver, according to Gainesville police.

The men, who reportedly robbed 19-year-old Jessica Pinonez after rear-ending her vehicle on Aviation Boulevard at about 10 a.m. Monday, fled the scene in a tan SUV and a black-and-primer passenger car and were still at large Monday afternoon, according to police.

Pinonez told police that she pulled into the parking lot of Merritt Contracting at about 10 a.m. Monday after her vehicle was rear-ended by a black-and-primer passenger car.

Once Pinonez stopped, three men approached her. One of the men, wielding a screwdriver, robbed Pinonez of an undisclosed amount of money, according to reports. No one was injured.

Two of the men fled in the tan SUV and the third fled in the black-and-primer passenger car, according to police. All three men were Hispanic, but there are not yet descriptions of two of the suspects, police said. One man could be in his early 20s, police said.
