The New York City Police Department is asking the public’s assistance identifying the suspects wanted for rape within the confines of the 73 Precinct.
On Thursday, January 7, 2016, at 9:10 p.m., the victim, a 18-year-old female, was with her father inside Osborne park in Brooklyn, in the vicinity of Lott Avenue and Osborne Street, when they were approached by five black males, one of whom was armed with a gun. The male with the gun pointed it at them and told the father to leave the area. The father complied and each one of the five suspects raped the victim.
