HAMTRAMCK, Mich. - Multiple sources confirm that around 2:30 a.m., four women were walking out of a nightclub near Hamtramck when a man forced three of the women into a mini-van.  The fourth woman was able to get away, and was able to inform other friends of the situation.  Sources tell Local 4 the suspect drove the three women to Detroit's east side where he raped all three of them.
