3 men in custody after NYC attack on churchgoer

Walker and the 17-year-old are charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree criminal sex act, first-degree criminal use of a firearm, sex abuse, and second-degree menacing, according to police.

The fourth suspect, a 20-year-old, is still be sought.

So far officers have managed to secure CCTV footage showing the victim walking along the street with four men on the other side of the road.

Pastor Kehinde Oyetunde of the Celestial Church of Christ Grace of Blessing Parish in Jamaica, told The Christian Post Thursday morning that the unidentified woman is a senior member of his church.

"Brandon and Williams took turns engaging in oral sex from her", Rosenbaum said, recalling the statement that Williams allegedly gave to police.

"I called the cops right away", Oyetunde said. The men then forced her to disrobe and sexually assaulted her, according to police. She will be asked to identify the men during a lineup, authorities have indicated.

He told CBS2: 'She was crying.

The pastor took the woman to the hospital.

"She was scared, she was crying, she was just crying like a baby".

"They said, 'If you don't do that, I'll shoot you.' So I did what I had to do", the victim said. She reportedly told them she had HIV, but that didn't deter them. "She (had) bruises on her face".

The suspects fled the scene and the victim ran back to the church, screaming out for the pastor.

She started attending the Queens house of worship after her church in Coney Island burned down a decade ago. "When I came back, the third one was finishing up".

The church has reached out to the woman who was attacked to support her and let her know she's not alone.

In regard to the alleged July 12 robbery, Brown's office said the incident took place at approximately 10 p.m.in front of 147-12 105 ave. when Williams approached the men with what appeared to be a gun and demanded one man's wallet and cell phone.

Ginel said he was at the scene of the crime and saw the woman naked, but denied partaking in the act itself, according to prosecutors.

After realizing that the woman, who her pastor describes as a social worker, had no money to give, the men chose to take her body instead and invited three of their friends nearby to join in.
