The Orland Park Police Department notified Oak Lawn police that a sexual assault victim was being taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center around 12:15 p.m. Oct. 1. She was met by Oak Lawn police officers who described the woman as “visibly shaken and nearly in tears.”

According to the report, the woman belonged to an unspecified support group. On Sept. 20, the woman told police that she received a call from a woman named “Mary,” with an issue similar to hers.

“Mary” asked the woman if the two could get together to talk. Both women agreed to meet at a restaurant at 107th Street and Pulaski Road around 10 a.m. Monday. The woman arrived in Oak Lawn at the scheduled time, and realized there was no restaurant at the corner.

Police said the woman pulled into the parking lot of a convenience store on the 10600 block of Pulaski.

After waiting there briefly, a four-door, tan car pulled next to hers in the parking lot. Without getting out of the car, the male driver asked if she was looking for Mary. The woman said that she was, and the driver told her that Mary wasn’t feeling well, and asked if she could follow him to their house.

Police said the woman followed the man westbound on 107th Street across Pulaski. After Pulaski, the report said the cars “drove down a couple of blocks” and made a left turn, going southbound down an unknown street. After a series of right and left turns, she realized she was turned around, the report said.

The tan car finally pulled into a driveway and the woman parked her car in the street. The driver got out of his car as the woman walked up the driveway. They both entered the house together.

The driver was described as a male white, five-feet-eleven-inches, with a husky build, gray-haired and clean-shaven. He was wearing blue jeans and a light blue, fleece pullover.

Police said the house they drove up to was a ranch-style home, with dark brown brick and dark windows. It had a single driveway and detached garage. The driveway is on the left side of the house. She and the driver ascended one or two steps to enter through the side door from the driveway.

The man asked the woman to wait in the kitchen while he went to another area of the house. He came back and told the woman that Mary was in her bedroom and asked if she would go talk to her.

Police said the woman followed the man to the bedroom. When she entered the room there was a second man waiting. The first man pushed her face down on the bed. After being pushed down, the second male was leaning on her back, holding her hands. The driver slipped off her pants and her shoes fell off too, reports said. He began slapping her buttocks with what she believed to be a belt. When she started screaming, the second man clasped his hand over her mouth.

She began kicking and the first man would hit the bottoms of her feet with the object. Both men switched places and the second man hit her with a harder object.

While the second man was beating her, both men pushed the woman to her knees on the floor. Police said they forced her to perform oral sex.

The second man was described as a male white Latino in his thirties, clean-shaven with black hair and hairy hands. He was wearing blue jeans with an unbuttoned green and black flannel shirt, and a white T-shirt underneath.

Police said the woman was forced back on to the bed on her back. Both men had intercourse with her. When the act was over, the men forced her out of the house the same way she came in.

She exited the house in her shirt. The men threw her pants out after her and she put them on in the driveway.

Police said the woman made it back to her car and she managed to find her way to 107th Street and Pulaski. She phoned a friend on her way home, who advised her to call police. The woman responded that she just wanted to go home and ended the conversation.

She received another unspecified phone call from someone else who told her that she couldn’t go home because it would upset her mother. According to the report, the woman decided to drive to the Orland Park Police Department, who contacted Oak Lawn police that the woman was being taken by their fire department to Christ Hospital.

After the woman received medical treatment, Oak Lawn police detectives drove up and down streets in the area. Police said she could not point out the house nor remember where it was.

Parts of this police report from were redacted by police to protect the victim’s identity. Please call the Oak Lawn Police if you have any information about this house, the car or the two men at 708 422-8292.

Sounds like we aren't getting the whole story. Disturbing nonetheless.
BibbidyBobbidyBoo October 04, 2012 at 02:01 PM
This report, although awful, sounds suspicious in many respects. Woman left the original meeting location - knowing full well she was misled - and went to another location where a random man in a van asks if she is waiting for Mary? Agrees to go to a private home, being led through a series of twists and turns but doesn't flee? Walks into a home with a strange man? Didn't she try to call this Mary to verify anything that was happening? Horrible assault, but there is a description of having intercourse with two men - not being raped by two men. Two men allegedly rape her, but let her out of the house without apparent concern that she has the address, could have written down the vehicle info, a full description of them, etc? She drove from Oak Lawn to Orland to report it to police? She couldn't tell the police what street or house number it was? I understand being traumatized will shut down reasoning and the urge to flee is great, but some of these just seem hinky. I hope she recovers quickly. I felt fear reading this report and feel sympathy for her. I just don't believe we are getting the true story yet.

The story is disturbing enough for an adult to read but left on the open press for any child to read is even more disturbing. Judgement seems to be missing. This article should be edited more carefully. It's really not necessary to print the details of these acts for all to see, is it?
Karen October 04, 2012 at 02:11 PM
And why did Oak Lawn Patch feel the need to put all of the details from the police report into this article?? Completely unnecessary.
ME October 04, 2012 at 02:24 PM
Very disturbing, if it is true, but how the heck can this woman not know where the house was. Give me a break. She had a phone. Why didn't she take a picture? Is she disabled and unaware of her surroundings and if that is the case, then why is she able to drive? She shouldn't have a license if she can't figure out where she is going or where she has been. Something very fishy about this story. I don't believe it!
Rich October 04, 2012 at 02:25 PM
First off, my prayers to the victim. Trusting people you don't know is no longer an option these days. I know this is an extreme isolated issue, but you don't have to look too hard to realize the cozy, safe, suburb most of us moved into years ago no longer exists. I have not heard our mayor discuss this issue " safety " in any of the board meetings, or have the police chief do so. It seems he is more interested into seeing how quickly they can get through the meeting and they actually joke about it constantly. The park area on Laramie and 107th street have become a hangout for teens that I don't believe even live in Oak Lawn. It probably makes sense to remove the basketball court there as that seems to be the main draw. I would hope the district trustee would address this as most of my neighbors stay clear of the nature trail there for fear of gang activity.
ME October 04, 2012 at 02:29 PM
And another thing.....why the heck would some guys throw her out into the driveway pantsless? Didn't they think someone would see them? This didn't happen. Ridiculous. And why the heck were all these specifics in the Patch for all to see? The actual acts should not have been posted. Patch, I think you better make sure these stories are true before posting them. You took a long time with the poor guy who was held at gunpoint in his house, but this one pops up almost immediately? Not right! What is the name of the support group? What kind of person goes to a house with a man they don't know and then goes into the bedroom nonetheless. Wasn't she suspicious at all? It sounds like someone is either looking for some attention or trying to get back at someone for something! You need to remove this until you find out the facts.
East Side Willie October 04, 2012 at 02:32 PM
If these were black guys you would have hundreds of people talking about gang bangers!
ME October 04, 2012 at 02:42 PM
Gang bangers come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. They are not only black. Get off the race thing and stick to the story.
Dm October 04, 2012 at 03:17 PM
The streets do wined and turn in that area of Oak Lawn. 110th, Stewell Pl. 109th Dean Dr. Arnold ave. I can see someone getting turned around when your not form this area of town. Some people think this is Alsip or Mtgreenwood. To bad there is a rapsit in the area
CAJ October 04, 2012 at 03:36 PM
Kids can find alot worse than this story on the internet or any prime-time television show. If true, this story should be a good lesson for kids ( and apparently) some adults to not follow strangers to places known/unknown.
Missy October 04, 2012 at 03:48 PM
It makes me upset that people automatically do not believe this woman because she cannot remember specifics, or it seems a little off. Be in the position she has been in, then voice your terrible opinion. This is why women have a hard time telling people what happened when assaulted, because everyone blames the victim and not the soul-less monsters who did that to them. Do you really think a victim is thinking, "I should take a picture." NO. Victims are trying to get to safety. Where they feel safe and to be alone. You do not think straight after something so horrible and tragic happens. The problem is you blame the victim, that is what is wrong. Blame the criminal, NOT THE VICTIM!
Tom October 04, 2012 at 04:01 PM
There is something more to this story. It does not make sense.
BibbidyBobbidyBoo October 04, 2012 at 04:02 PM
I am absolutely not blaming the victim. I have been a victim and I know what goes through one's mind and the reactions that may not be appropriate. You will read my initial comment and note that I did express that her thoughts could have been foggy. You will also read the article and find that all of my questions or concerns are valid. Hopefully Patch will follow up on the investigation of this incident so we have more than just a sensational report.
J October 04, 2012 at 04:04 PM
Sounds fishy in many ways. i predict there will be a tiny blurb about how it was untrue in a future edition.
Missy October 04, 2012 at 04:39 PM
Bibbidy, I was mostly referring to the "ME" poster.
princess October 04, 2012 at 07:56 PM
now shes trying to sound like the victim or her drug deal went wrong and made she she had a story so she wouldn't get in trouble
ME October 04, 2012 at 08:00 PM
Missy, this doesn't sound far fetched to you? Remember the high school girl who claimed she was raped for four hours and then thrown out of a car and then walked home? That was terrible. It wasn't true. She came clean later and said she was lieing. That one sounded as silly as this one.
stephanie parker October 04, 2012 at 08:02 PM
wow ALOT of you need to remember that they said they left parts of this story out, and so she didnt remember the house or the street or take a picture with her phone come on she was just beaten and raped her first thought was proablly get the hell out of there so they dont come back and kill her , maybe there is more to the story they did say they left alot out to protect her and you need to think what if this was your mom or friend or sister that this happend to would some of you still talk crap about her have sympathy for this woman my God , its said that this world judges so much before they even know the full story or what really happend this woman is tramatized and yes they did write some stuff that was pretty disturbing in the article but they need to put stuff like that in there so you know exactly what happend and trust me with the stuff on tv and what is on the internet this is nothing compared to that , you should see these new cartoons that the kids watch no in days there not rated G no more !!! just please always remember this could of been anyone of your family members or mom or sister or friend and pray that she is ok and recovers and her memory does come back to get these scumb bags!!!
Borninol October 04, 2012 at 08:21 PM
A terrible story none the less, but are these two guys that bold to bring this women to whosever house and throw her out in the open for someone to see? Or are they retarded? They had to think that this women would go to the police with them knocking on their door. This story doesn't make a lot of sense.
Ann Last October 04, 2012 at 09:52 PM
The inability of some readers to comprehend the story has no bearing on its truth. Believe every victim, because the percentage of falsely reported rapes is miniscule, while the number of unreported rapes is far too high. The latter is partly due to the attitudes displayed here by many commenters.
MP October 04, 2012 at 10:14 PM
I just hope they find the guys and they find out the entire story...it's awfully close to my house, based on the description!
sean costa October 04, 2012 at 11:01 PM
Rape and sexual assault crimes are the most unreported crimes in the world. Why because when a victim come forward and says they were raped or assaulted and there story seems a little strange or off people automatically think oh this person is lying or this person is just trying to get attention or this girl is trying to get back at some boy blah blah blah. And if it isn't true that it's not doesn't mean you need to say this girl is just seeking attention. Good rule of thumb is no matter how weird or strange the story sounds always believe the victim until you can prove otherwise. Same with child abuse always believe the child until you can prove otherwise.
frank October 05, 2012 at 04:20 AM
Please explain? I have Verification that my comment was posted. Well, where is it?
RG October 05, 2012 at 07:48 PM
Hmmm... you may be right that it might not have been their house. And yes it was very stupid of them because what if she wasn't so traumatized that she drive around the corner, lock her car and call 911. They would have been locked up! It doesn't make sense BUT its true that many rapes go upreported (and she just wanted to go home until her friend intervened). Also, don't forget that every day there "stupid criminal" stories that are unbelievable but true. I think the key in their arrests would come from tracking down "Mary" and "Mary's phone # and looking for that car.
DLC DAVE October 05, 2012 at 09:36 PM
One can only hope this story didn't happen ,sad world . What happen to (never trust strangers lesson)
ME October 06, 2012 at 12:16 PM
Think about this story. She didn't know the name of the restaurant? She went to a convenience store one block away and the guys magincally walked up to her car and asked if she was looking for Mary? C'mon. Why did the guys decide to go to 106th Street? Why didn't they drive down Pulaski and look for this woman? It totally makes no sense. And another thing....this woman could remember every little detail about the entire incident except where it was? When she was thrown out of the house, why didn't she run to a neighbors or run around screaming or call 911 immediately? She obviously was alert and coherant or sane enough to find her way to the Orland Park Police Station which is a bit of a drive from Oak Lawn. And, she was able to call find her phone and call her friend, but she couldn't take a picture of the home or the car that she followed or write down the license number, either on paper or on her phone? Either the woman has some medical issues, which is probably the case, and this never happened, or it was a drug deal gone wrong, or she has been using these guys for sex, or there are no guys at all and it's all made up. We'll hear the truth soon enough. Definitely a lot of fishy stuff here.
DLC DAVE October 06, 2012 at 02:38 PM
TMI I think telling us the whole routine was way too much info
