Biwabik Township, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Authorities say that two males in an unmarked car reportedly used dash-mounted police emergency lights to pull over a woman in Biwabik Township Saturday evening.

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office in Virginia, a female motorist was traveling alone along County Highway 4, about five miles south of Biwabik, when the men pulled her over.
