    Mayor denounces rape of woman by five men in New York playground

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York Mayor Bill de Blasio on Sunday denounced the rape of a woman by five men at a Brooklyn playground, pledging police would work to swiftly apprehend the suspects in "this vicious crime."

    Police said on Saturday the men took turns raping the 18-year-old woman at the playground operated by the New York City Parks Department in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn just after 9 p.m. on Thursday. One man pointed a gun at the father and told him to leave, police said.

    After the father left, the men each assaulted the woman, police said. They fled when her father returned a short while later, accompanied by two officers.

    The woman was treated at a hospital and released, police said.

    Police released surveillance video taken in a nearby bodega that they said showed the five suspects before the attack. The video depicts a group of black men in jackets and sweatshirts talking and laughing inside the store.

    Police asked for the public's help in identifying the suspects.

    "We will take every step possible to find and swiftly prosecute the assailants of this vicious crime," de Blasio said in a statement. "Every New Yorker in every neighborhood deserves to feel safe and protected, and we will not stop until the perpetrators of this disturbing attack are held accountable for their actions."

    De Blasio and his police commissioner, Bill Bratton, have faced criticism over the perception that major crime is rising in America's most populous city.

    Major crimes reported dropped 1.7 percent last year and by 5.8 percent since de Blasio took office two years ago. But some categories have increased, according to a report issued earlier this month. Rapes were up 6.3 percent last year.

    Brownsville section of Bklyn , NYC has the highest rate of Public Housing in America (a fact).
    It is (UNFORTUNATELY) and has long been one of NYC's most dangerous neighborhoods.

    A January night at 9:PM on a playground. A good place to be , poppa ?
    Only if you're on the basketball court foul shooting.

    Very unfortunate for anyone in that situation.Another sad NYC story.

    From all accounts provided to the NYPD (including the father and victim) - the two had been drinking inside the playground that night.

    Strange that no '911' (emergency) call was made as the father went 'to get help from the Police'. (I can only wonder how long the intoxicated man took to locate said assistance).

    Usually the NYPD 'Housing Bureau' works in close proximity to those projects.
    The five apprehended suspects were age 14 - 18 and will be charged with rape.
