HARVEY | Chicago police are questioning a person of interest in connection with reports that four young women were abducted in Chicago late last week, taken to a home in Harvey and sexually assaulted, Chicago police spokesman Daniel O'Brien said.

The person was taken in for questioning Tuesday evening, and no charges have been filed, O'Brien said,

Two 14-year-old girls and two 21-year-old women told police they were abducted sometime late Friday night or early Saturday morning from Chicago and taken to a home in Harvey near the intersection of East 162nd Street and Finch Avenue, where they were sexually assaulted by their abductor, authorities said.

The young women - three sisters and a friend - were able to get out of the home around 9:30 p.m. Sunday and ran to a guard shack at Allied Tube at West 162nd Street and Lathrop Avenue, where they told a security officer they had been abducted and raped and needed to talk to police, authorities said. The four were taken to Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest for evaluation of the rape allegations, authorities said.

Chicago Area 1 detectives are working with Harvey authorities in the investigation.
