LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Four people have been charged in an attack on a woman who told police was restrained over several days at a southeast Lawrence home.

The Lawrence Journal World (https://bit.ly/1CjVbCD ) reports that three of the suspects were charged Friday in Douglas County District Court with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated battery. The fourth suspect was charged with aggravated assault. The two men and two women were arrested Wednesday night.

Lawrence police spokesman Sgt. Trent McKinley says the 22-year-old woman was able to escape late Tuesday evening when some of the suspects left the house, and she “eventually contacted a relative for help.” McKinley described her injuries as serious and said she was taken to a hospital. Police say the woman was “beaten by several individuals and had her movements restricted.”
