Police are looking for a pair of men who were caught on camera Friday barging into a Brooklyn tattoo parlor with weapons drawn before allegedly stealing property and raping a customer.

The men were seen on surveillance video storming into the Inktastic tattoo parlor on Ralph Avenue in Bushwick just after a female suspect rang the bell and walked in the front door about 2 a.m.

The first man is seen walking in pointing a silver handgun and is followed closely by the second robber, who police say had a knife. As the men make it past the doorway, the female suspect runs out.

Once inside, police say the men stole items from the parlor’s employees and three customers. One of the men also raped a 23-year-old female customer.

Meanwhile, the female suspect went to a getaway car, a white Nissan Maxima. Police say she drove the two men away from the scene.

The customer who was raped was taken to Woodhull Hospital. No one else was injured.

If you have information, contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS or www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
