The Upstate New York home of a woman refusing to cooperate with a rape investigation involving her daughter was burglarized while she remained holed up in a church in New York City, but her family told police not to investigate the crime. Glenda Brawley spent her second day in the Queens church, defying an arrest warrant issued after she refused to testify before a grand jury investigating the rape allegations of her daughter Tawana, 16.

Demonstrators disrupted traffic in Brooklyn to protest what they contend is injustice in the Tawana Brawley case, and police arrested 11 people, including the Rev. Al Sharpton and C. Vernon Mason, both Brawley family advisers. Sharpton addressed about 200 demonstrators outside Borough Hall before they spread out in groups, sat in streets and blocked traffic.
