Police Seek Central Park Attackers

Police are searching for three suspects who are accused of sexually assaulting a victim they met earlier on the subway.

Sources tell Eyewitness News the alleged victim first met her attackers on a subway from the Bronx early Sunday morning.

It's believed the 23-year-old and the three men were going to smoke marijuana together in the park, and that's when she was suddenly attacked.

Store surveillance video released by police shows all three men police are searching for.

While the victim recovers at a hospital, her attackers are on the street. Police hope someone who recognizes them will give them up.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the department's CrimeStoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.

Police released descriptions of the three suspects:

Suspect #1:
Hispanic man, 5'5" tall, with a dark colored Yankee baseball cap, dark colored patterned shirt and khaki shorts.

Suspect #2:
Hispanic man, 5'5" tall, with a red Yankee cap, red shirt and black shorts.

Suspect #3:
Hispanic man, 5'5" tall, with a light blue baseball cap, light blue shirt and khaki pants.
