Last week Thursday evening, an eighteen year old woman was raped by four teenagers, (ages 14, 15, 15, and 17) at the Osborn Playground in Brooklyn, New York. There is a allege fifth suspect still at large.
According to police reports, the father said he was in a nearby handball court with his daughter having a drink when the teens approached them. One of the teens pulled a gun out on the father threatening to shoot him if he didn’t leave.
“One of them put a gun in my face, telling me to run, and all of them had their way with her,” the father CNN affiliate WABC.
The father said he tried to get help in a nearby bodega, but neither the people in the store and the workers would assist him. . The individuals in the bodega, claims the father appeared to be drunk and incoherent.There has been several reports stating the father was in the park drinking with his daughter
He soon returned to the scene of the rape with two police officers, but the assailants have already left.
Law enforcement’s said the young woman was “drunk” and “combative” and refused to be taken to the hospital. Nearby sources said the father and daughter was drinking originally drinking in an incognito location in the park in an attempt to hide from the police.
On Sunday, the four teens are in custody with pending charges.
What happened to this young woman is a hateful crime that no human being should have to endure. My heart truly goes out to her. However, there are many holes in this story:
- Why is a grown man drinking with an eighteen year old in a park and at night?
- What father will leave his daughter to be attack?
- Shame on everyone in the bodega who refused to help the father. Regardless, of him allegedly being drunk, once someone screams out rape or help, you should take their pleas serious
