(KMOV) -- Police in Cahokia are looking for four men, who stormed into a house early Tuesday morning, and raped two women inside.

It happened just after 1 a.m. at a home on Oak Tree Lane in Cahokia. Police say a couple in the home had another couple over at the time. The four victims said that four men with guns, wearing ski masks, came in through an unlocked door.

The gunmen rounded the victims up in the living room and made the women take their clothes off.

"One of the women was assaulted, raped right there in the living room and the other one was pulled back to a back room," said Sgt. Tim Schrader.

Police, so far, believe one gunman raped both women.

The suspects also ransacked the home, stole electronics, and a victim's Grand Marquis.

Wednesday afternoon, deputies in St. Clair County found the stolen car about a mile from the crime scene. Cahokia police say crime scene investigators will search the car for fingerprints and other evidence.

There have been no arrests. Police say they are also looking for a dark-colored, possibly green SUV seen in the area Tuesday morning.
