Police are searching for two men suspected of raping a teenager in Brooklyn last Friday.

The incident occurred at around 8 a.m. at East New York Avenue and East 95th Street while the 16-year-old victim was waiting for the B12 bus.

Police say a vehicle, possibly a livery cab, pulled up next to her, and a man jumped out of the back seat and allegedly pushed her to the ground at gunpoint.

Police say he then put her inside the vehicle, where he allegedly sexually assaulted her.

Police released the sketch seen above of the suspect that they believe committed the act.

Both the attacker and the driver are wanted by police.

Residents who travel in the area at night can't believe something like that could happen during the day.

"Of course I'm happy that you told me that this happened. Now, I am informed, and I definitely won't be in this area again at this time," said one person.

"It's disgusting. It is disgusting," said another person. "The world has gone to, whatever, I don't know. It's a shame. It is a shame."

The man who assaulted the girl is described as being 5'9" tall, about 30 to 35 years old, with corn rows in his hair.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
