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?’”
