Chicago police are investigating a home invasion and the sexual assault of the mother of three while her children were held in the next room. It happened around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Roseland community. The woman's 14-year-old son answered the door, and three men, two of them -- armed with guns -- reportedly forced their way into the house.

Police say they were demanding to know where drugs were located. The woman's three teenage children -- a boy and two girls -- were forced into a bedroom, and the door was secured.

The house was ransacked, and one of the men allegedly assaulted the woman.

The suspects made off with cell phones and a PlayStation and barricaded the family in one room. The mother refused medical attention.
