Police say a teen reported missing more than two years ago escaped from a southwestern Illinois home this week, saying she'd had a baby after she was raped by her captor who kept her locked away.
The 19-year-old woman escaped from the dumpy Washington Park residence Monday with the help of a relative and police raided the home Thursday. The woman's two-year-old son was removed from the home and police arrested a 24-year-old man and his mother, reports The Associated Press. No charges have yet been laid.
Police said the woman told them she was repeatedly sexually assaulted and beaten.
The teen was originally from St. Louis and it appears she new her captor.
