An 18-year-old girl was forceful taken from her father while on a walk with him and gang-raped by a group of men who took turns raping her during a horrific scene at a Brooklyn playground, officials said Saturday.
According to NY Daily News:
"The victim was walking with her father through the Osborn Playground in Brownsville about 11:15 p.m. on Thursday when the five suspects approached her and her father near the park’s handball courts, officials said.
One of the suspects — described by police sources as a man in his 20s or 30s in a red jacket and black pants — pulled a gun and ordered the victim’s dad to leave the playground, officials said.
“Get the f--- out of here,” he ordered, according to police sources.
Each of the five men then raped the young woman, the NYPD said."
The victim’s father ran helpless from the playground and called 911, according to cops. When he returned soon after with two cops, the suspects were already gone and the victim was trembling from her ordeal. She was treated at Kings County Hospital.
The five rapists remained on the loose Saturday, as police released surveillance video of the group entering a nearby bodega before the attack. Several of the suspects can be seen smiling in the footage.
Rapes are up more than 5% in NYC, as per NYPD stats.
