A fourth suspect wanted in the sexual assault of a woman who was attacked at gunpoint while leaving church in Queens has been identified as a 20-year-old man with a long rap sheet.

According to WCBS, police say they’re looking for Isiah Shorter, who has 14 prior arrests, in connection with the July 11 incident.

“Prayer works so good,” the husband of the 50-year old victim said. “We know that they’re going to be caught because they have done what they did to the wrong person. They have done that to a woman of God.”

Police released Shorter’s photo to the public Monday.

Police said Shorter and the group of other suspects can be seen on surveillance video when one of them starts running towards the victim who had just left service from the church.

Police said the suspects held her up at gunpoint and stole her debit card and cellphone. Detectives say the men also sexually assaulted her.

Shorter and the other suspects were living in a teen group home near the crime scene.

An employee at the group home tipped off police that the suspects in the case were staying there. The victim’s husband tells CBS2 the information comes all thanks to God.

 20-year old Brandon Walker

, 17-year-old Justin Williams and 19-year-old Julisses Ginel are all charged with robbery, criminal sex act, criminal use of a firearm and sex abuse, according to police.
