New York Police Says Woman Was Sexually Assaulted By 5 Men After Leaving Queens Church

By Lori Chung

Police are searching for five men they said sexually assaulted a woman as she left a Queens church Tuesday night.”

“They should be prepared that God is going to lay a hand on them” Pastor Kehinde Oyegunde said about the attackers. “I’m sure of that. Nobody does evil and goes scot-free, especially when you lay your hand on a woman of Christ.”

It happened around 11:10 p.m. on 150th St. between Beaver Road in Jamaica, according to the city police department.

Police said two men approached the 50-year old woman and forced her to take off her clothes after one of the men displayed a gun. They then stole her money, debit card, and cell phone.

Three more men then showed up and forced her to perform a sex act, police said, before all five men fled.

NY1 was told the victim had just left a late service at her church, which was nearby. She ran back there after the attack.

“Her face was red, and she went inside,” Pastor Oyegunde recalled. “I called the cops right away. The cops came around, then they consoled her, then they said, ‘Take us to where this happened.'”

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police said the five men are described as being in their 20s.

NY1 was told that a truck was parked along the side of the street where the attack happened, obstructing the area from view.
