Two men were being held for questioning Monday in the kidnaping, beating and rape of a Downey woman who was attacked after her assailants deliberately rammed their car into hers to get her to pull off the freeway. The woman's ordeal, which began at 1:30 a.m. Saturday on the 605 Freeway in Norwalk, did not end until 4 p.m. Sunday, when she was found locked inside the trunk of a 1969 Ford Futura that the assailants had abandoned in Wilmington. She had been in the car trunk more than 30 hours, according to a sheriff's deputy, who said the woman's pounding on the trunk caught the attention of a passer-by.
