Police still searching for additional suspects after five women were held hostage

- More information is coming out about the five women who were held hostage in a South Austin apartment. 

APD said they responded to the Super 8 Motel in North Austin around 5 a.m. on Friday. That is the location where one of the five survivors had escaped her captors and called 911. 

Officers were then made aware of the situation. Court documents state the women were lured up to an apartment to buy drugs, instead they were held at gun point, bound and four of them were raped. 

Police said the suspects also threatened their lives after not getting information that could help them rob other drug dealers.
