According to Chicago Police, the incidents happened at approximately 6:15 a.m. at the intersection of Montrose and Kimball Avenues. The female victim was waiting for a bus, when a small silver sedan approached her. The car parked in a nearby parking lot, and two men began calling to her, trying to persuade her to get into the car. Then, one of the men forced her into the backseat of the car.
