NEW YORK – New York City police have arrested four teenagers in the gang rape of an 18-year-old woman at a Brooklyn playground.
Police say all were being held as adults on charges of rape, forcible compulsion, criminal sex act and sexual abuse.
They identified the suspects as 14-year-old Denzel Murray, 15-year-olds Shaquell Cooper and Ethan Phillip, and 17-year-old Onandi Brown.
Two of the teens were arrested Sunday. Two were turned in by their parents.
The four are awaiting arraignment. It wasn't immediately clear if they had lawyers who could comment on the charges.
A fifth suspect is being sought.
The woman and her father were in the playground Thursday when the teens approached them. Police say one pulled out a handgun and ordered the father to leave before attacking her.
