Four Suspects in Brooklyn Rape Case in Custody

Four teenagers suspected of taking turns raping an 18-year-old woman at gunpoint at Brooklyn's Osborn Playground after ordering her father to leave have been taken into custody, The New York Times reported Jan. 10. The attack, which took place on Jan. 7, was allegedly carried out by these four teenagers and another young man, police said. Residents of the Brownsville neighborhood where the attack took place as well as several elected officials have criticized the police department for not releasing news of the attack to the public until Jan. 9. The police department contested this, however, saying the department generally releases public notice after finding and processing video or other leads.
