Four men were taken in for questioning Monday night in connection with the weekend rape of a young woman at 19th and Spruce streets. All four were taken from a home on South Eighth Street, where police on Monday served a search warrant.
Investigators tell NBC10 that four men who live at the home were taken to the Special Victims Unit headquarters for questioning on Monday. Three of the men were picked up at the home while another was found on his bike near his job at Christian and Broad Street.
Police say the four men are persons of interests at this point. No charges have been filed.
Police also say they collected at least two bikes as possible evidence.
The developments came after police released video and composite sketches on Monday afternoon.
