Three men have been charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl Saturday in south suburban Ford Heights.

Kwasi McMillian, 19, of Country Club Hills; Deandre Guy, 18, of Crete; and Jose Argue, 19, of Markham, have each been charged with a felony count of aggravated criminal sexual assault, according to a statement from the Cook County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities were called about 4:45 p.m. Saturday for reports of a “suspicious circumstance” at a vacant home in the 1400 block of Greenwood Avenue in Ford Heights, the sheriff’s office said. They arrived to find the three men in the home and the girl hidden in a closet.

Investigators determined that the girl had been walking in Sauk Village earlier that afternoon when McMillian, Guy and Argue took her, brought her to the vacant home and sexually assaulted her, the sheriff’s office said.

All three men appeared in bond court Tuesday before Judge Luciano Panici at the Markham Courthouse,who set their bail at $250,000 each, according to Cook County court records. They were all due back in court April 23.
