5th Suspect Held in Brooklyn Gang Rape

A fifth suspect wanted in the reported gang rape of an 18-year-old girl in Brooklyn was taken into custody Tuesday at his high school. The New York Post reported that the girl’s father, who went for help, was initially too drunk for shop owners to understand. Police arrived after the boys had already fled. The 17-year-old suspect has not yet been charged, sources said. The four other teens—ages 14 to 17—were all charged as adults and were held pending arraignment Tuesday. The four were all reportedly charged with rape, forcible compulsion, criminal sex act, and sex abuse.
