5 men rape 18-year-old girl at gunpoint in Brownsville playground: NYPD

Police have released surveillance video of five men accused of holding a teenager at gunpoint and raping her inside of a playground Thursday in Brooklyn.
"It's so sad, we got a lot of young girls out here," neighbor Angela Watson said.
The 18-year-old was walking with her father in Osborn Playground near Hegeman Avenue when they were approached by five men.
One of the men pointed a gun at the victims and told the father to leave.
The father fled and called police, while all five men raped the teenager.
By the time police had arrived, the suspects ran.
"It's a shame that a young girl can't walk down the street with her father without thugs raping her," community activist Michael Thomas told PIX11.
The victim was taken to Kings County Hospital in stable condition.
NYC Park advocate Geoffrey Croft says there were more than 500 violent crimes in city parks last year and yet there are no nighttime patrols.
"The city needs to dramatically step up law enforcement patrols in the parks," Croft said.
The victim was taken to Kings County Medical Center where she was treated and released.
