Two sought after a rape in West Farms

- The peace of Christmas morning along 180th street in the West Farms section was broken when two men raped a woman between Bronx Park and Devoe Ave.

Detectives flooded the neighborhood following the attack. Police say they are looking for two men who jumped into a white van. The attack occurred just after eight this morning.

The NYPD's 48th Precinct is near where the attack occurred, and that has many who live near the Wings Academy worried. Although statistically, crime in the Bronx is down in 2003, incidents of rape in the 48th precinct are increasing.
