A Brooklyn cab driver charged with raping a 12-year-old passenger in the back of his car beat her unconscious and threatened her with a gun during the horrific attack, prosecutors say.
“If you say anything, these bullets are for you,” Rafael Martinez, 32, threatened the pre-teen, say papers filed in Brooklyn Criminal Court.
Martinez picked up the girl Monday evening at her grandmother’s house in Fort Greene. The girl’s mother sent the cab there. The girl was at her grandmother’s picking up a new bike, authorities said.
Martinez drove the girl to Bergen St. in Crown Heights, pulled a handgun out of the glove compartment, and began loading it with bullets, say prosecutors.
