A New York teen-ager indicted in last April's Central Park "wilding" rampage turned state's evidence and will apparently testify that several other youths bragged about their role in the rape of a woman jogger. In a 10-minute court hearing, Jermaine Robinson, 15, pleaded guilty to robbing a male jogger during the two-hour crime spree April 19.

I almost killed a woman jogger a few days ago. I was driving on a quiet street in San Marino at 8:30 on a crisp weekend morning, going about 25 mph, just blocks from home. I was relaxed, listening to a favorite old song on the radio. As I drove around a curve, suddenly I was about to run over a woman jogging down the middle of the street. Luckily my brakes and reflexes worked. I braked, swerved and missed the woman by a few feet. Our close call was over. We did not speak.

A man attacked a female jogger, demanding that she surrender money and disrobe, but the woman resisted and escaped unharmed, sheriff's officials said Thursday. The 26-year-old Laguna Hills woman was jogging alone on La Paz Road near Alameda Avenue about 7:50 p.m. Wednesday when she was grabbed from behind and dragged into some nearby brush, said Sgt. Dave Remender. As the woman screamed, the man demanded money twice and then demanded she take her clothes off.

The case of one of the defendants in New York's Central Park jogger trial suffered a setback when the judge told the jury that parents do not "automatically" have to be present when police question a juvenile, as long as a reasonable effort had been made to notify the parents. Three youths charged with the rape and attempted murder of a woman jogger were juveniles at the time of the attack. One youth's defense involved the fact that his father had not been present during some of the

A grand jury returned the first two indictments in the Central Park attack on a 28-year-old woman jogger, who remained in a coma for a seventh day, officials said. Details of the sealed indictments, including the exact charges, were not released. The two teen-agers had been arrested on charges of first-degree rape, second-degree attempted murder and first-degree assault. The grand jury reviewed confessions from some of the eight youths arrested in the rape and assault of the Wall Street investment banker, the source said.

The story of the woman jogger who was savagely attacked in Central Park has horrified even supposedly jaded New Yorkers. The reported nonchalance of the teen-agers who participated in the attack has made the event even more sickening. There was, however, in the April 26 article, mention of a 15-year-old girl named Shante Chunn and her friends who came from their high school in Harlem to express concern (Part I). It is important for everyone who hears about this terrible crime to remember that the kids who went out "wilding" that night are not the only representatives of their peer group.

The rape and beating of a woman jogger in Central Park by a wolf pack of teen-agers prompted real estate billionaire Donald Trump to spend $85,000 on full-page newspaper advertisements today calling for the death penalty for such crimes. Trump, who has a long-running feud with Mayor Edward I. Koch on the quality of life in New York, said the Central Park attack was just another sign of growing lawlessness in the city and he disputed Koch's call to remove "hate and rancor from our hearts."
