GREENWICH VILLAGE — Investigators are set to review security video from the popular gay piano bar Duplex after a woman told police she was raped there hours after the gay pride parade passed through the Village, according to sources.

The woman told authorities she was attacked by a man in the bathroom of the bar on Christopher Street and Seventh Avenue South at approximately 12:30 a.m. Monday following the annual NYC Pride March.

Sources said the woman did not report the incident to Duplex staff. Duplex owner Tony DeCicco declined to comment. 

According to NYPD data, the 6th Precinct, which covers Greenwich Village, the West Village and the Meatpacking District, had seven reported rapes this year through June 11, the same as last year within the same period.
