Girl Abducted And Raped In Chicago’s Lawndale Neighborhood

There was an alert issued with regard to an alleged abduction at gunpoint and sexual assault by six men of a 14-year-old girl in Chicago’s Lawndale neighborhood on Monday morning.

The abduction happened as the girl was walking to school, sometime after 7:45 a.m.

An excerpt from the November 8, 2012 Chicago Tribune article titled “Alert:  Girl, 14, abducted and raped by 6 men” :

The girl left her home around 7:45 a.m. Monday and was walking in the 1600 block of Trumbull Avenue when a older model gray car damaged on the passenger side pulled up, according to a police report. The driver told the girl, “Get in the car,” the report said.

The girl refused and the driver got out of the car and pulled out a “silver pistol” and yelled at the girl, “You got 5 seconds,” according to the report.

The girl was forced into the car, driven to an apartment building, and sexually assaulted by six men.

She was dropped off at Roosevelt and Kedzie ten hours later.

The alert describes the men as black, 20-24 years old, 5’6″-6’3″, 130-170 lbs.  Five were said to have “dreadlocks” whereas one had hair that was short.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources including the Chicago Tribune article mentioned above, as well as the CBS New story of November 8, 2012 titled “Warning issued after abduction, rape of Chicago girl, 14.”
