Two young men approached a 50-year-old mother of three in Queens, New York, and raped her at gunpoint. Police are now searching for the suspects.
The woman told police that the men had wanted to rob her, but seeing that she didn’t have any money, they forced her downstairs into a subway station with a gun to her head. They stripped her and demanded that she perform oral sex on them.
She did everything she could to convince them not to, according to police. She even told them she was HIV positive so they’d leave her alone. She said that they did not care, and one of them even went to buy a condom.
The Daily Mail reports:
The 50-year-old woman had just left Celestial Church of Christ on Tuesday evening, just after 11pm, when she was approached by two young men on 150th Street as she walked to the Jamaica subway station.
They allegedly led her at gunpoint back down the block to 150th Street and Beaver Road where they attacked her behind a garbage truck demanding her wallet.
‘They tell me, “you don’t have money so take off your clothes!”‘ the victim told The New York Daily News. ‘I said, “What? In the middle of the street?”‘
They two men called over three other guys nearby to join them before they forced her to strip naked in the street and demanded she perform oral sex on them.
She claims she tried to scare them away by saying she was HIV-positive – which she is not – but that didn’t even frighten them. In fact, one of the men, who she described as short, went off to buy a condom.
‘They said, “if you don’t do that, I’ll shoot you,”‘ the victim recounted to the Daily News. ‘So I did what I had to do.’
She says one of the attackers called her a ‘stupid African woman’ and slapped her.
After the attack and the group of men fled, the woman ran back to the church, half-naked and crying to her pastor, Kehinde Oyetunde said.
‘She was crying and her face was full of rubbish,’ Oyetunde told the Daily News.
‘She had her clothes in her hands. She said that they pulled a gun on her and took her stuff, then wanted to sleep with her.
She lied and told them she was an HIV patient and to please leave her alone.’
Her pastor picked her up from the hospital where she sought treatment and brought her home. She returned to work the following day but was still shaken.
‘This is horrible,’ the pastor added. ‘She is a very kind woman. She’s been with my church for 10 years.’
The woman did have a rape kit taken at the hospital.
Police also found a condom nearby to the scene and are currently processing it to see if there’s a DNA match.
