Police are currently on the hunt for the second of two suspects who allegedly invaded a Quincy home Tuesday evening and tied up one of its residents, a woman who is six months pregnant.

The victim’s 16-year-old daughter ran upstairs and hid in her locked bedroom, from which she called the police.

“Please hurry, I think they’re hurting her,” the young girl reportedly told the dispatcher.

“When officers arrived, police chased down and arrested Kevin Murphy, who is now charged with assault and battery, kidnapping and home invasion,” WCVB Boston reports.

Police are still currently looking for a second suspect who could be armed, though police say that a firearm was recovered at the scene.

Both the pregnant woman and her daughter have been taken to a hospital to be evaluated.
