Police investigating report of downtown kidnapping

Cleveland police are investigating a report of a young woman kidnapped outside the downtown casino, and then driven to a home and raped by four men.

The incident happened in mid-December, but it just came to light in court records. We just obtained the police report through a records request.

Documents show four men started talking to a 19-year-old woman about hanging out. She'd been waiting for friends outside the casino in the wee hours of a Saturday morning.

But those men turned violent--grabbing the woman--leading her into a vehicle. And then it got worse.

The woman told police she was drunk, and the group drove her to a home. She says the men took her inside, and all 4 men sexually assaulted her.

The ordeal finally ended when the attackers took the woman to a gas station at 93rd and Harvard, and left her there.

Cleveland police sex crimes investigators are working the case with DNA testing,

And even investigating a Facebook page.

The police report shows the attackers kept telling the woman, "It's gonna be okay."
