Charles RogersDesolate city park at East 101st Street and Glenwood Road was where woman was raped, robbed, stripped and beaten last weekend. Charles Rogers A 49-year-old woman walking home to her Breukelen Houses apartment early Sunday was accosted by two men, robbed, raped, sodomized, made to parade through the public housing complex naked and raped again by a third man until she escaped at least a half-hour later, police said.

Detectives from the 69th Precinct said the woman, whose name was not revealed, told them that, while she was walking along East 101st Street, north of Flatlands Avenue, at about 1 a.m. on March 18, two men, both black, but one described as "light" and the other "dark," approached her and forced her into a park area where they beat her and stripped her of her clothes.

Police said she also told them the men took two rings and proceeded to have her perform sex acts on them.

When the dark man left, the second man made her walk the nearly-eight blocks through the project until he came to the apartment building of a friend, called him on his cell phone and told him to come downstairs.

The girl was forced to have sex with the third man in a rear stairwell. When he left to go back to his apartment, the captor forced the girl to walk with him farther within the Breukelen complex until they reached the intersection of Williams and De-Witt avenues, at which time she saw a parked NYFD ambulance. She was able to escape and ran to the ambulance and asked for the help of two paramedics. Meanwhile, her attacker fled. The paramedics took her to Brook-dale Hospital and police were called from there.

Police said the only other description of the attackers was that they were all in their 20s.

Anyone with further information is asked to call the 69th Precinct Detec-tive Squad at (718) 257-6215 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. All calls will be kept confidential.
