    Police have arrested one man, and are still searching for two others accused of intimidating a woman at Zuccotti Park Monday, threatening to kill her for a complaint she filed with police, resulting in the arrest of a friend of the suspects.

    The 24-year-old woman filed a complaint for an Oct. 11 incident in which she and her friends were assaulted inside Zuccotti Park, according to police. The complaint led to an arrest.

    Three friends of the person arrested approached the woman at Zuccotti Park Monday morning, and one verbally threatened to kill her for having filed the complaint.

    One of the suspects was arrested Tuesday night: Hasan Castillo, 23, of East Orange, N.J., was charged with intimidating a witness.

    Police are still searching for two other suspects: a male about 16 to 18 years old, last seen wearing a brown hat with a white shirt that said "Stone Harbor" across the front; and a man about 18 to 20 years old, with a black beard, last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt.
