May 18, 2003 -- Police arrested two men yesterday for the gang rape of a deaf-mute woman in an abandoned Brooklyn building Wednesday.

The 21-year-old victim, whose name is being withheld by cops, picked two Brooklyn men out of a police lineup: Kevin Hercules, 18, of Blake Avenue and Suliik Mann Rowe, 18, of Sutter Avenue.

The men were charged with first-degree or forcible rape.

Charges of third-degree rape also were filed because the woman, due to her physical impairment, was unable to give consent.

The men were also charged with unlawful imprisonment.

Police are still searching for two other suspects.
