In late August, a family was terrorized when three men forced their way into the Crown Heights apartment. Now, police have charged one of the suspects with multiple counts of rape and assault.
The violent incident occurred on August 30, when they barged into a home on Sterling Place. They tied up six men and boys with duct tape and then raped and sexually assaulted a woman, her teenage daughter, and a family friend in another room for three hours. Then they robbed the victims of $1,500.
The suspect, Justin Harris, 24, lives in the neighborhood and the Sun reports that three guns were found during the arrest. A second suspect was identified as Deshawn Owens; all three suspects are members of the Bloods.
According to the Post, the police believe the suspects' actions "stemmed from an unpaid drug debt."
