New York City police are searching for a group of men who sexually assaulted and robbed a woman leaving a church.
A 50-year-old woman was leaving a Queens church Tuesday when two men put a gun to her head. Three other men joined them and forced the woman to perform oral sex.
After taking her purse, the men forced her to take all her clothes off.
The woman lied that she was HIV-positive, which kept her from being raped, her pastor, Kehinde Oytund told NBC New York.
“She was screaming I’m HIV positive you can’t,” Oyetund said.
The woman ran back into the church after the men fled.
“I’m downstairs in the office and I heard her screaming,” Oyetund said. “She was crying and shivering.”
Poice are reviewing surveillance footage and hope to track down all five men.
Oyetund told NBC that the woman is “doing as well as she can be.”
