ELMONT - Police say a woman was tied up, terrorized and robbed in her Elmont home.

Investigators say four suspects were arrested at the victim's Gotham Avenue home. They were identified as Alicia Campbell, 27, of Queens; Brian Virola, 23, of Westchester County; Elizabeth Hogg, 22, of Elmont; and Farianny Gerladino, 22, of the Bronx.

Prosecutors say the four suspects took turns punching and kicking the 29-year-old woman before tying her up with duct tape and wires at around 4 a.m. Sunday. They say the suspects also used an iron and ironing board, whipping her and ripping out her hair. They also allegedly used Mace on the victim, and took her cellphone, credit card and driver's license before they were apprehended.

According to officials, the victim's screams were what alerted a neighbor to the attack, despite a sock being stuffed in her mouth. The neighbor then called police.

Police have withheld the victim's name, but News 12 is told that she was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for her injuries.

The suspects were arraigned Sunday. They are being held on $100,000 bail and are due back in court June 3.
