BROOKLYN - Police released surveillance video that they hope will help catch the suspects behind a rape and robbery at a Bed-Stuy tattoo parlor.

According to authorities, a woman rang the bell to Inktastic on Ralph Avenue Jan. 17. They say she returned to her car when a worker opened the door and two armed men barged in.

The suspects took items from shop's employees, as well as three customers. Cops say one of the suspects also raped a 23-year-old customer before they fled the scene in a white Nissan Maxima.

The rape victim was taken to Woodhull Hospital for treatment.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
