NEW YORK (CNN) — Two teen girls were detained Thursday at a Victoria’s Secret store in Manhattan after possible human remains were found in one of their bags, an NYPD spokesman told CNN.

The 17-year-old girls were reportedly acting suspiciously at the Herald Square store.

Police were called once store employees detained them and made the discovery, said Sgt. Lee Jones.

According to Jones, while initial reports indicate the remains are a fetus, the medical examiner’s office is investigating.

One of the teens was taken to Bellevue Hospital to be evaluated, according to Jones, and the other is in police custody at a nearby precinct.

Both teens were charged as adults and face charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, according to the NYPD.

The department identified them as Tiana Rodriguez, of Brooklyn, and Francis Estevez, of Queens.

Robin Hoffman, a spokeswoman for Limited Brands, which owns Victoria’s Secret, said the company would have no comment because of the ongoing police investigation.

    This is the mindset this country will be dealing with when abortions are legal and they pitch the ‘baby’ away like garbage. Folks like these young girls think, abortionists can do it, why can’t we? What’s the difference?

      or… this is the mind set of young girls who have been hit over the head about how wrong an abortion is! If I have an abortion everyone will know but if I just dump the baby maybe noone will find out. I personally could never go through with having an abortion but to me it seems better than leaving a newborn in a bag, a toilet, a trash can, etc. to suffer until it eventually dies. The real problem is parents not being involved in their childrens lives, trying to be their friend or worse not paying any attention to them instead of being a parent.
