    BOSTON - An investigation is underway after a Hyde Park woman said she was beaten, robbed and kidnapped during an early-morning home invasion.

    Several officers, along with K-9 units, responded to 767 Harvard St. in Mattapan just after 4:30 a.m.

    A 59-year-old woman told officers she was beaten and robbed at her home on Beaver Street earlier in the night. The suspects, four males, had held her gunpoint, assaulted and ransacked her home, she told police.

    The woman said two of the men then forced her into her car, drove to an ATM and made her take out cash. They then dropped her off near 767 Harvard Ave, a cemetery about three miles away from her home, she said. 

    Boston 25 News spoke with Karen Seck, a good Samaritan who said she helped the victim get to the hospital.

    "She said they came into her house broke into her house. Stole her stuff, her TV and took her to the bank. Made her take out money and took her to the cemetery, beat her and left her here,” she said.

    Seck was on her way to the gym when she was flagged down by the victim. She said the woman had visible injuries on the side of her face but was released from the hospital Thursday afternoon.

    "it's not going to do not good. The damage is done. Hopefully they will pay for what they did," the victim's brother Carl said.

    Police tell Boston 25 News that the two suspects drove away in the victim's car and the other two suspects were following in a white Honda, with smoke coming from the vehicle. 

    Police said the victim's vehicle is a 2012 Blue Kia Soul, Massachusetts Registration 3VH745. 

    Officers are still searching for both vehicles and the four suspects.
