Curtis Sliwa calls for more protection of kids after brutal sexual attack on teenage girl in Flushing

Following the horrific incident where a 13-year-old girl was raped in Kissena Corridor Park in Flushing last Thursday, former NYC mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, several GOP candidates, and community leaders held a rally in the park on Monday evening. They called for increased protection for children in Flushing after the attacker forced the victim and her friend into a wooded area at knifepoint, tied them up, and committed the heinous crime.

Sliwa began the rally by commending the NYPD for their “vigorous effort” to find the perp.
