19 members of Bronx's 'Slut Gang' indicted on various charges


Nearly 20 members of a north Bronx crew known as the Slut Gang terrorized Co-op City and the Boston Secor Houses, flooding the area with drugs and violence, prosecutors charged after the crew was rounded up Thursday.

The 19 gangbangers with nicknames like Pookie, Crom Gunz and Yoda, typically referred to each other as Slut or Slutz, and used S-shaped symbols to demonstrate their membership, papers show.

The men face an array of charges in Manhattan Federal Court, including attempted murder, robbery and trafficking of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and Ecstasy. 

The crew “committed an enormous amount of fatal and nonfatal violence” from 2010 to 2017, “including shootings, stabbings, slashings, beatings, and robberies,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Rachel Maimin wrote.

The Slut Gang waged war with rival crews, the 2Fly YGz based in the Eastchester Gardens houses and the Big Money Bosses, on White Plains Road, according to the indictment.

The investigation grew out of a takedown last year of those two rival gangs, which authorities described as the largest bust of its kind in city history.

Prosecutors said they were looking into whether members of the Slut Gang were responsible for the 2012 shooting of 14-year-old Kemar Brooks, an innocent bystander caught in crossfire.

Two of the gang members — Frank (Nitty) Rosa and Tyrone (Loopy) Bailey — are accused of holding up a drug trafficker at gunpoint on Aug. 25.

Prosecutors said plea discussions had already begun with some of the gangbangers.

Attorney Lorraine Gauli-Rufo said that accused Slut Gang member Kaliym (Leem) Holmes was “gainfully employed” and had “no criminal history whatsoever.”

But prosecutors countered that he is a “supplier to one of the top suppliers.”

Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman set Holmes’ bail at $250,000.

“It’s up to you to prove the government wrong and me right,” Freeman said.
