Two people have been taken into police custody in connection with an alleged group rape of an 18-year-old woman at a Brooklyn playground.

A police spokesman said Sunday night the two "voluntarily came into the precinct." He gave no other details.

Authorities say the woman was accosted just after 9 p.m. Thursday as she and her father walked inside Osborn Playground.

Police say there were five men, and one pointed a gun at the father and told him to leave.

Authorities say each man raped the woman. The father returned with two police officers, but the attackers had fled.

The woman was treated at Kings County Hospital and released.

Police have released surveillance video that they say shows the men in a bodega before the rape.
