New details surrounding the violent rape of a 33-year-old woman by a trio of 16-year-old boys in Chinatown have been released in a horrifying criminal complaint.
The victim told detectives that the teens, who snuck out of the group home Boys Town early Monday morning, dragged her from an internet cafe on Eldridge Street around 4 a.m. and proceeded to rape and beat her in a nearby stairwell before making off with her underwear and purse.
After she was grabbed, the victim said her next memory is being surrounded by teenagers, one of whom raped her while the other two beat her. When she came to the second time, she was alone, missing many of her clothes, in addition to her driver's license, cellphone, credit cards, keys and money, NBC New York reports.
The complaint also says that one teen has admitted to trying to have sex with the victim, and at least one in the group attempted to use the stolen keys to break into her Chelsea apartment, though surveillance footage indicates that they ran out of the building less than a minute after ascending the stairs, apparently after the victim's roommate managed to keep them from opening the door.
The teens, identified as Eric Pek, Emanuel Burrows and Sanata Asliev, were arrested Tuesday and have been charged with first-degree rape, robbery, assault, burglary and grand larceny.
Boys Town has also been closed by authorities following the incident, and the two workers on duty have been suspended without pay for failing to adequately monitor the teens, the Times reports.
The three were the only residents of the Park Slope home, which was supposed to be staffed 24-hours a day.
