Surveillance video shows gang of four 'punks' following 50-year-old woman churchgoer down the street in Queens before they 'forced her to perform oral sex at gunpoint'

She left the house of the Lord, and walked right into a world of unholy horrors.

A born-again Christian woman, yanked off the street as she left a Queens church service, was forced to perform oral sex on three of the five callous predators who beat and robbed her.

“I’m shaken,” said the married mother of two, who spoke to the Daily News. “I’m trying to get over it, but it’s not easy.”

Two of the five assailants, including one carrying a handgun, first approached the victim on Liberty Ave. near 150th St. in Jamaica around 11 p.m. Tuesday, cops said.

They summoned three friends to join them before forcing the helpless woman to strip in the street and perform the sex acts behind a parked garbage truck, cops said.

“They said, ‘If you don’t do that, I’ll shoot you,’” the victim recounted. “So I did what I had to do.”

The woman spoke on the condition of anonymity. And The News generally doesn’t identify victims of sexual assault.

All five suspects remained on the loose Wednesday, according to police — who recovered video footage from near the crime scene that shows the possible attackers running away.

The 50-year-old woman was walking about a half-block away from the Celestial Church of Christ when the gunman came up from behind, put a weapon to her head and demanded all her cash.

“I thought it was a joke at first, but when I turned he put the gun to my forehead and repeated himself, saying ‘Give me all the money,’” the Liberian immigrant said. “I told him ‘I have no money’ and he said ‘Give me your wallet.’”

When the victim placed her wallet on the ground, the gunman stole her cell phone, headset and MetroCard — but the worst was still ahead. The gun-toting perp was with another man, and the pair invited three pals standing nearby to join them.

“They tell me, ‘You don’t have money so take off your clothes!’” the victim told The News. “I said, ‘What? In the middle of the street?’”

She first tried to scare the fiends away by announcing that she was HIV-positive — which she is not — but the threat of infection didn’t scare the attackers.

Three of the five men took turns forcing the woman to perform oral sex on them, police said. One of the attackers — “a short guy” — did run off and return with a condom, the woman recalled.

“You’re a stupid African woman,” one of the men said as he slapped the victim.

Cops recovered at least one condom found behind the garbage truck and were processing it for DNA, police sources said. The victim’s sweater was also under scrutiny for potential evidence.

Police came by Queens General Hospital to interview the victim, who was waiting for NYPD detectives to conduct a followup interview Wednesday.

“There are just mean, hooligan guys who wanted to rob and sleep with somebody,” the victim said of her tormentors. “If they just wanted money, they should have left. But they wanted more.”

The victim’s friend said she went to the hospital to find the woman in tears.

“The shock was too much for her,” the friend told The News.

The victim told cops she was making the four-block trek to the Jamaica subway station by herself when the gunman and his friend appeared on the dark, desolate street lined with auto body shops.

The victim lives in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, and started attending the Queens house of worship after her church in Coney Island burned down a decade ago.

The attackers also hit and smacked the victim in the face, leaving her with visible bruises.

A few moments after she had left the church, the woman — half-naked and sobbing — came running back, said Pastor Kehinde Oyetunde.

“She was crying and her face was full of rubbish,” Oyetunde said. “She had her clothes in her hands. She said that they pulled a gun on her and took her stuff, then wanted to sleep with her.

“She lied and told them she was an HIV patient and to please leave her alone.”

Oyetunde picked her up from the hospital about 5 a.m. and brought her home.

“This is horrible,” the pastor said. “She is a very kind woman. She’s been with my church for 10 years.”

The deeply religious woman said she was unsure about returning to the Queens church — at least not alone.

“I’m very worried,” she said. “I don’t know if I can go back there.”
