PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Two girls feared for their lives after claiming a group of Middle Eastern men stalked them at a Portland underage nightclub early Sunday morning.

Allee Olivera, 16, told police men of Middle Eastern descent stalked them for hours as they danced at The Escape Nightclub on southwest Park Avenue in downtown Portland.

A few of the men even followed Olivera and her friend outside for a cigarette.

"They were asking us if we wanted to hang out and get in the car with them and we told them no, we went back into the club and the two men followed us,” she said.

Olivera said she was very scared and was unsure what to do.

When they tried to leave the club a few hours later, the girls told police the men blocked their way out of the club.

 "When we decided to drive off, a car came in front of us on a one way street and blocked us off and two other cars came up right behind us and tried to trap us. We swerved out of the way and literally drove onto the sidewalk to get away," Olivera said.

The two girls quickly ran from the car into the club where they stayed with security until 7 a.m.

When they left, they noticed one of the cars that had cut them off earlier that night was following them on I-5. They then called 911 and stayed on the line until troopers met up with them.

FOX 12 spoke to the co-owner of The Escape Nightclub. Robert Glover, who said security was aware of the unusual men the entire night and had kept an eye on the women. He said they admitted they even walked the girls out to their car as a precaution.

"There’s always going to be a situation where you just don't have control over everything that happens," Robert Glover said.

Oregon State Police have handed over the case to Portland police. The investigation is ongoing.
