Four men allegedly raped a 22-year-old woman in a Williamsburg hotel room last week after luring her with an invitation to a party — the 16th rape in the neighborhood so far this year.

The victim was on Broadway near Rodney Street at around 2 am on Nov. 10 when she asked two men for directions.

The men instead offered an invitation to a “party” at the Glenwood Hotel, a $33-a-night motel nearby. The victim followed them into the room, which already had two men inside. All four raped her, cops said.

The victim escaped later that day, called the police, and walked to a nearby hospital where she was treated for her injuries.

Police are searching for the four suspects, who they believe are between the ages of 25 and 30-years-old, based on surveillance footage from the hotel.

The rape is the 16th reported in the 90th Precinct so far this year. Last year at this point, there had been seven rapes reported.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-8477.

Reach reporter Aaron Short at or by calling (718) 260-2547.

kat from south williamsburg says:
The cops in the 90th precinct have a VERY bad attitude about harassment of women in this neighborhood. I and friends of mine have called the cops about sexual gropings and assaults. When you call the cops and they show up they say they take a report, but when you go down to the precinct or call there is no record. My friend was thrown against a wall inside her apt bldg at South 1 and Hooper. The cops came and said they took a report. They lied. When I called the cops about the sexual groping from a man who I could identify and lived in the hood they showed up and said "there is nothing we can do unless the guy hits you and leaves marks. Go buy pepper spray and use it on him." How come the cops in Sunset Park investigate gropings but the lame cops in the 90th do NOTHING. All these rapes are no surprise. The woman who answers the phone at the precinct randomly hangs up. Half the time no one answers the phone there. Pathetic.

Kat, South 1st between Union and Hooper is where I was born. I'm sorry you've got to deal with Kafka instead of courtesy at the 9-oh. I hope you get some relief.

Peter from South Brooklyn says:

When you report a crime insist
that they take a REPORT;if they refuse,
call the precinct and ask to speak to
the officer in charge.If he refuses, suggest that you'll go to the press.
Insist, especially. if it is some kind of assault, robbery, or burglary.
The officers are under pressure not to
take reports to keep crime statistics down, unfortunately.

i agree with you peter, they do downgrade crime stats, if you search officer Adrian schoolcraft you will see that precinct commanders downgrade felonies to misdemeanors and refuse to take crime reports
