    Chicago Police are asking for the public's help to track down two men who kidnapped a 15-year-old girl.

    The teen managed to escape her attackers near 66th and California in the city's Marquette Park neighborhood, police said, but the men remain on the loose.

    Police said the girl was walking on South California around 7:30 p.m. last Thursday when two men approached her. One put his hands over her eyes, police said, and together they carried her to their car.

    The girl told police the men drove her to a nearby alley where she managed to escape before she was hurt.

    Police said both men are black, one described as 25 to 30 years old, clean shaven and average height. The other is between 30 and 49 years ago, standing about six feet tall with a goatee.

    The vehicle the men were driving was described as an older black or dark green, four-door sedan with a black leather interior. The make and model are not known, but the girl said the car was pretty beat up.

    Police released sketches of the men and urge anyone who recognizes them or has information about the incident to call the Area Central Bureau of Detectives at 312-747-8380.

    In the meantime police urge area resident to walk in groups and be aware of those around you.
