On thursday after 9 p.m. five men at a Brooklyn playground took turns raping the 18-year-old woman at the playground operated by the New York City Parks Department in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday denounced the act and said police would work to swiftly apprehend the suspects in “this vicious crime.”
Police said one person used a gun to remove the father from the scene and the men each assaulted the woman. They fled when her father returned a short while later, accompanied by two officers. The woman was treated at a hospital and released.
