PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Amtrak says it's sent an allegation of a sexual assault on a train passing through Oregon to local prosecutors.

Amtrak spokeswoman Vernae Graham said Monday she could provide no other details.

Salem police told KGW-TV (http://is.gd/Iw2nus) they took two men off the Los Angeles-Seattle train for questioning Sunday.

Passengers told KGW of a young woman in tears who was harassed in the lounge car by two men whose behavior and language had earlier caused families to move from their seats.
