(Woonsocket-AP) -- Two men are being questioned in connection with the abduction of two women.

This morning, police found a 20-year-oldProvidence woman bound and gagged in a Woonsocket apartment after her friend escaped and notified police.

Police say two men held the women against their will in the apartment and the 20-year-old was tied up and forced to watch the beating of her 19-year-old friend.

Lieutenant Luke Gallant says the two men taken into custody are the younger woman�s 22-year-old boyfriend, and a 53-year-old man.

Gallant says the younger man and the two women left Mario�s Showplace in Johnston together last night. The women had worked there but had been fired or quit.

Gallant says they went to the 53-year-old�s apartment where it seems all four were using drugs.

Police expect to file assault and battery and other charges against both men.
