BROOKLYN (AP) — Police say four teenagers, including a 13-year-old, are facing charges in connection to a Brooklyn home invasion in which a woman was sexually assaulted.
Authorities announced their arrests on Saturday.
Authorities say the teens entered the unlocked apartment in the Brownsville section last Monday afternoon, wearing ski masks and carrying a gun. They tied up a man and woman in the home, and sexually assaulted the woman. After the sexual attack, police say they stole three laptop computers, cash, jewelry, a cell phone and credit and debit cards.
Another roommate later returned home and found the victims.
The suspects charged in the sexual assault are a 17-year-old, an 18-year-old and the 13-year-old. They also face charges connected to the thefts. Another 17-year-old is facing burglary charges.
