COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A Columbus teen is recovering after she says she was forced into an abandoned house and raped by two men. 

It happened in broad daylight Tuesday morning according to reports.

The 19-year-old girl says she was taking her trash out at her apartment complex on Havenbrook Court, when two black men came up to her.

She says one pulled out a pistol and told her to come with them, pointing the gun in her face and adding that they would kill her if she caused a scene.

The teen tells police the men walked her to a nearby abandoned house and once inside, says both men took turns forcing her to have sex with them. One, she says, punched her in the face.

Afterwards, the victim says they let her go and told her if she called the police, they would kill her.

A neighbor drove the teenager to a friend's house where she called police. She was taken to Saint Francis Hospital for treatment.

The case has been forwarded to the Columbus Police Department's Sex Crimes Unit as the investigation continues.

She describes one of her attackers as black man in his 20s, 5'9" 190 lbs with dark skin. The other she describes as a black man in his 50s, 5'8" 130 lbs with dark skin.

So far, officials say no arrests have been made.
