A fifth suspect is now in custody in the gang rape of an 18-year-old woman in a Brooklyn playground.
The 17-year-old was taken into custody Tuesday morning. He is being questioned and no charges were immediately filed.
Four other teenagers were arrested and charged as adults in the case early Tuesday morning.
The NYPD has identified the suspects as Denzel Murray, 14, Shaquell Cooper and Ethan Phillips, both 15, and Onandi Brown, 17.
All are charged with rape, forcible compulsion, criminal sex act, and sexual abuse.
The suspects are due to appear in court in Downtown Brooklyn Tuesday. They are expected to plead not guilty because they claim the sex was consensual.
Two of the teens were arrested Sunday, and two others later turned themselves in.
Four of the five suspects, all between the ages of 14 and 17, were taken into custody in connection with the Thursday night incident at a playground in Brownsville.
The outraged community is speaking out and looking for answers after the horrific incident, in which the victim says five men took turns raping her, and that she screamed for help but no one stopped.
“I was just really scared,” the victim said. “I didn’t know what to do. I was in a panic mode.”
On Saturday evening, police released surveillance video showing the suspects from inside a bodega not far from Osborne Park, where police say the brutal attack unfolded just after 9 p.m.
