CHICAGO (CBS) — Police have issued a warning about a serious and disturbing attack on a child in the North Lawndale neighborhood.

CBS 2’s Brad Edwards reports, around 7:45 a.m. Monday, a 14-year-old girl was walking to school when a group of six men grabbed her off the street, forced her into a car, then drove her to a house, where they raped her.

The girl was abducted near 16th Street and Trumbull Avenue, according to police.

“Who does that? Why are they doing this to kids? … That don’t make sense,” Staricha Langtson said as she walked home with her kids nearby Wednesday night.

On Thursday morning, Guardian Angels were in the neighborhood passing out flyers and talking to residents. They will be escorting students to school.

The attack had her recalculating, after thinking her kids had been safe walking to school themselves in the morning.

“Kids getting raped and attacked? No, I haven’t heard it. I thought this was a safe neighborhood, but apparently it’s not,” Langtson said. “My kids are not walking to school by theyself anymore.”

The suspects were all described as African-American men between 20 and 24 years old, between 5-foot-6 and 6-foot-3, and and 130 to 170 pounds.

Five of the suspects had long dreadlocks; one had brown tips, another had red tips. The sixth offender had a close fade haircut.

Three of the suspects had a dark complexion, two had a medium brown complexion, and one had a light complexion.

The vehicle they used was described as a gray four-door vehicle with damage on the right front end.

One suspect was wearing a black hoodie, another wore a green jacket, another was wearing an Abercrombie jacket, another wore a North Face jacket, another wore a white T-shirt.

Police warned area residents to be aware of their surroundings, and report any suspicious activity immediately.
