A Little Neck woman was raped and robbed after two men forced their way in through the door of her home as she was leaving, cops said Saturday.
The unidentified suspects targeted the home, located near 251st Street and 57th Avenue, just after 9:30 p.m., according to officers from the 111th Precinct. As the 34-year-old woman left the house, the men, who were armed with a handgun, forced the woman and the other occupants into a bedroom.
The suspects demanded money and forced the victim upstairs to look for cash. She gave them $1,000 in cash. One of the suspects then raped her.
The suspects brought the woman downstairs and took $800 in cash from the woman’s mother. They demanded more money, so the victim gave them $8,000 from a night table in another bedroom. The second suspect then raped her.
A third suspect soon came into the house and the three men fled the home in two separate cars — a light-colored four-door sedan and a light-colored newer-model Mercedes Benz E-Class series.
The victim was taken to the hospital in stable condition, according to police.
Cops describe the first suspect as a black man, last seen a black ski mask, black jacket and blue latex gloves. The second suspect is described as a black man, 5'11”-6'0" tall, last seen wearing a black Adidas jacket, hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, tan work boots and carrying a red bag and a black duffle bag. The third suspect is described as a black man, 6'0" tall; last seen wearing a black jacket with a hood over his face, dark blue jeans and black sneakers.
Reports of rape are up slightly year to date in Queens North, from 59 reports in 2018 to 62 reports in 2019, as of the end of April.
