TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Tucson police are looking for several men who broke into a home and kidnapped two women early Thursday morning.

Officers responded to a home in the 6700 block of South Tenth Avenue just after 1 a.m., according to Sgt. Pete Dugan of the Tucson Police Department.

When they arrived, they spoke with the two women, who said they were at their home in the 1100 block of East Silverlake Road when multiple masked gunmen kicked open their door.

The women told officers the gunmen asked them the whereabouts of a man, but they said they didn't know.

The gunmen then ransacked the house looking for the man, stole some personal items from the women, then forced the women to leave with them.

The gunmen took the women to the Tenth Avenue home from which the 911 call came from, which is associated with the man the men were looking for.

The women said the gunmen then tried breaking into that home, but the people who were home said they were calling 911.

Dugan said the gunmen likely heard that threat, and they let the women go.

Dugan said this wasn't a random home invasion, but that the gunmen "went to a specific residence looking for a specific person."

Officers are looking for a white early 2000s Chevrolet Impala.

Dugan said they are also trying to find out who the man is that the suspects were looking for so they can speak with him.

If anyone has any information on the case, they should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
