A 13-year-old boy tells authorities that he was snatched from a Detroit elementary school doorway and sexually assaulted in a nearby abandoned house.

The Detroit News, WDIV-TV and WXYZ-TV report that police were searching Wednesday afternoon for two men who reportedly knocked on a locked door at Wayne Elementary and grabbed the boy when he opened it.

A school district spokeswoman says it got reports of a possible incident involving a 13-year-old student and its officers were investigating.

Detroit police declined comment on the report Wednesday evening.

People living in the area tell WDIV that they saw the boy walking down the street with his hands tied.

Resident Lawrence Snider tells WXYZ the boy "had no pants on, no shoes on."
