Police are searching for two men in connection to a brutal rape over the weekend.
An NYPD spokesman told BushwickBK that two Hispanic men attacked and raped an unidentified woman near the corner of Jefferson Street and Evergreen Avenue Saturday morning around 5am. Rumors that the woman was aslo killed are not true.
The men are described as being 25- to 30-years-old and both being 5’9".
The 83rd Precinct set up a check point near the site of the crime and was asking drivers for identification.
"We are here because of the rape and hope to get more information," said an officer at the scene.
Last year, just two blocks away, another woman was raped, and the attacker was never found. The NYPD warned it expected crime to rise in 2011.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
