Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The NYPD is looking for three people who robbed and raped a woman at the Inkstatic Tattoo Parlor in Brooklyn.

Police say it happened about 2 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 17 at the store on Ralph Ave. in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

They say a female suspect rang the bell and when a worker opened the door, two men in hoodies went inside.  One had a gun and the other was armed with a knife.

While men went inside, the woman returned to the getaway vehicle, a late model white Nissan Maxima.

Police say the suspects stole property from three customers and two employees. They say one of the suspects raped a 23-year-old customer.  The rape victim was taken to Woodhull Hospital for treatment.  Her condition was not released.

All three took off in the Nissan after the attack.

Police did not release descriptions of the suspects but did release a short video clip of the three at the tattoo parlor door and asked anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers:
