Police in the south suburbs are investigating a reported case of abduction and assault involving four young women, including two 14-year-olds. The women say they escaped from a home near 162nd and Finch in Harvey.

Police detectives were on the scene early Monday morning looking for clues.

The women say they were taken from Chicago's South Side and held against their will inside the home and assaulted.

According to the Southtown Star, the victims were tied up. They managed to escape after one of the women chewed through the ropes and untied the others. The paper says the four then ran to a business a couple blocks away where they called for help.

Three are sisters, and one 14-year-old is a friend of the other teen.
