Two of the suspects were caught after their parents turned them in after police released surveillance video of them taken from a convenience store, police say.
The woman had been with her father in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn when the five males allegedly approached with a gun and told the father to leave, police said.
The father ran to a convenience store where he tried to call police but store employees would not let him, according to reports by multiple outlets.
The victim was transported to the hospital, police say.
The victim’s father told ABC 7, “The one put a gun in my face telling me to run, and all of them had their way with her.”
