Cab rape victim, 12, 'had her head smashed into a window and was knocked unconscious before being assaulted at gunpoint'

A TWELVE year old girl was allegedly raped by the driver of a livery cab on the way to her grandmothers home in Brooklyn.

The Brooklyn District Attorney told NBC 4 New York that the driver smashed the young girl's head against a window, knocking her unconscious before raping her at gunpoint.

Rafeal Martinez, 32, allegedly told the girl "If you say anything, these bullets are for you."

The 12 year old girl was put in the livery cab around 5pm in Fort Greene on Monday.

What was supposed to be a 20 minute and 3.5 mile ride turned into two hours, NBC reported.

During the drive, Martinez reportedly parked the car and entered the back of the car where the girl was sitting and raped her, police said.

The girl was taken to Woodhull Hospital on Monday night and police were called there about 8.45 pm.

Police were able to track down Martinez through his Brooklyn-based employer, Evelyn Car Services.

While Martinez has reportedly been fired from his job, the general manger of the car service said she never received any complaints about him in the year that he worked there.

Martinez was taken into custody on Tuesday and is charged with rape, criminal sex act, sex abuse, endangering the welfare of a child, menacing and assault.

According to NBC, he was awaiting arraignment on Wednesday night.
