Tattoo parlor rape and robbery in Brooklyn

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The NYPD is looking for three people who robbed and raped a woman at the Inkstatic Tattoo Parlor in Brooklyn.

Police say it happened about 2 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 17 at the store on Ralph Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

They say a female suspect rang the bell and when a worker opened the door, two men in hoodies went inside.  One had a gun and the other was armed with a knife.

While men went inside, the woman returned to the getaway vehicle, a late model white Nissan Maxima.

Police say the suspects stole property from three customers and two employees. They say one of the suspects raped a 23-year-old customer.  The rape victim was taken to Woodhull Hospital for treatment.  Her condition was not released.

All three took off in the Nissan after the attack.

Police did not release descriptions of the suspects but did release a short video clip of the three at the tattoo parlor door and asked anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers:

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is pulling back the reins on his plans to quickly get rid of New York City's horse-drawn carriage industry, stung by a recent outpouring of support for the colorful coaches that have clip-clopped their way through Central Park for more than 150 years. A campaign pledge to take on the horses during his first week as mayor was eclipsed by other issues.

    NYPD Twitter hashtag backfires

    A NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
