The driver repeatedly tried to get in her way and block her. Alternately, they kept passing lewd comments. She kept ignoring them till they finally blocked her car. One of the accused alighted from the SUV and approached her car. The woman managed to give them a slip. She called police helpline number, and gave a description of the three accused and the registration number of the SUV.
