DNAinfo reports that the attack took place at 2:15 am on February 28 in a hotel on 57th St. Police said the woman, 27, was in the hotel room with one of the men when she kicked him out after an argument.

Moments later, the man returned with two other men, carrying a gun. The three men then proceeded to sexually assault the woman while one of the men threatened to shoot her if she didn’t stop screaming.

The victim was treated for bruises and abrasions at Roosevelt Hospital. The NYPD released surveillance images of the three suspects (above), though police remain unclear whether there were additional men involved in the assault.

The NYPD is urging anyone with information to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS, submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577.
