BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — The NYPD has released surveillance video of three suspects in the armed robbery of a Bed-Stuy tattoo parlor in which a female customer was raped.

The video shows a woman in a black jacket being buzzed into Inktastic, a tattoo parlor at 118 Ralph Ave., early Friday. She is followed inside by two men in hooded sweatshirts brandishing a gun and a knife, according to police. 

The woman left and waited in a nearby late model white Nissan Maxima, police said.

Once inside, police said the men proceeded to move two store employees and three customers into a back room and took everyone's wallet, cellphone and keys, as DNAinfo New York previously reported.

One of the men then grabbed a 23-year-old female customer, removed her clothes and raped her, according to police.

The three suspects then fled the scene in the Nissan Maxima, police said.

The 23-year-old was treated at Woodhull Hospital, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
