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.
