Five Teens Force Father To Leave So They Can Gang Rape His Daughter In Brooklyn Playground -- Four Now In Custody

Benjamin Simon

A previous report from The Inquisitr covered a horrific incident that took place in a Brooklyn playground wherein an 18-year-old woman was gang raped by five teenage boys. At the time, reports suggested the woman was with a male friend, but it later turned out to be her father. The teens pulled a gun on the dad and forced him to leave the playground so that they could take turns raping his daughter. By the time the father returned with police officers, the teens were gone.

But according to the Huffington Post, this appalling crime could result in justice as four of the five rapists have been brought into custody. Brooklyn police revealed on Sunday that two of the teenagers involved in the gang rape surrendered to the authorities and the other two were successfully apprehended. The suspects consisted of two 15-year-olds, a 17-year-old, and a 14-year-old. Police are searching for a suspected fifth person who took part in the gang rape as well.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams called for a full investigation into the gang rape "not only to identify all those responsible for this horrific attack, but also to determine if everything possible was done to protect the victim and the public," and questioned why police did not notify the public about the incident until 48 hours later.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio also released a statement about the gang rape and pledged that all five culprits will be brought into custody.

"I am disgusted and deeply saddened by the horrific attack. Every New Yorker in every neighborhood deserves to feel safe and protected, and we will not stop until the perpetrators of this disturbing attack are held accountable for their actions."

None of the suspects in the video have been publicly named, but charges are pending for the four that were apprehended. Brooklyn police are working to find the final suspect who is still at large.

"When an 18-year-old girl can get raped while walking with her father in a park by five men in Brownsville, New York, we have hit an all-time moral low in the City of New York."
