The New York Times reported:
Three teenagers suspected of taking turns raping an 18-year-old woman at a Brooklyn playground after ordering her father to leave her side were taken into custody on Sunday, a law enforcement official said.
The attack on Thursday night, which the police said was carried out at gunpoint by five young men, set off waves of anger and uncertainty in the Brownsville neighborhood where it happened. Elected officials also questioned whether the police notified the public quickly enough after the attack, a suggestion that the Police Department strongly contested.
Two teenagers, a 14-year-old and a 15-year-old, were turned in to police custody by their parents, and a third, 15, was also taken into custody, the official said. Charges against them were pending.
The developments came a day after the police released a surveillance video of the young men entering a deli before the attack. After the attack, they ran off before the father found help and returned to the playground with police officers.
