Four men allegedly raped a 22-year-old woman in a Williamsburg hotel room last week after luring her with an invitation to a party — the 16th rape in the neighborhood so far this year.
The victim was on Broadway near Rodney Street at around 2 am on Nov. 10 when she asked two men for directions.
The men instead offered an invitation to a “party” at the Glenwood Hotel, a $33-a-night motel nearby. The victim followed them into the room, which already had two men inside. All four raped her, cops said.
The victim escaped later that day, called the police, and walked to a nearby hospital where she was treated for her injuries.
Police are searching for the four suspects, who they believe are between the ages of 25 and 30-years-old, based on surveillance footage from the hotel.
The rape is the 16th reported in the 90th Precinct so far this year. Last year at this point, there had been seven rapes reported.
