    Chicago Police are searching for the six men who sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl Monday in Lawndale.

    Police said the girl was walking to school around 7:45 a.m. when the men drove up and forced her into their vehicle near 16th Street and Trumbell Avenue. The girl was driven to an unknown location, police said, taken into a house and sexually assaulted.

    The offenders were described as black men between the ages of 20 and 24, standing 5-foot-6 to 6-foot-3 and weighing 130  to 170 pounds. Five of them had long dreads. They were wearing a black hoodie, Abercrombie jacket, North Face jackets, a green jacket and a white T-shirt.

    Police said the vehicle they were in was a gray 4-door with damage to the right side.

    Police said the assault happened a day before a separate assault on a 14-year-old girl, this time near President Barack Obama's house in Hyde Park.

    With police and the Secret Service just two blocks away, the girl told police she was walking her dog when a man forced her between two garages.

    Both crimes left neighbors disgusted.

    "I'm very pained and hurt because I have a child and I don't want to see that happen to anyone else," said Beverly Neil.

    "I'm angry because I have nieces that go to school," Ron Randle said.

    Anyone with information about either incident is asked to call police.
