NY police officers 'charged with raping handcuffed teenager in their van'

NY police officers 'charged with raping handcuffed teenager in their van'

"This validates what my client has always said - she was kidnapped, handcuffed, brutally raped and then thrown onto the street by two on-duty officers", David, told PIX11.

This chilling account was offered in court on Monday morning as the Brooklyn district attorney's office unsealed a 50-count indictment against the detectives, Edward Martins and Richard Hall, charging them with rape, kidnapping and official misconduct.

The cops and woman left the park, and then the detectives allegedly told the young woman to call her friends and tell them not to follow their van.

Detective Martins allegedly told the young woman he and his partner are "freaks" and asked her what she wanted to do to get out of the arrest. The detective then forced her to perform oral sex on him while Hall drove and watched in the mirror, the DA said.

The detectives then stopped the van in Bay Ridge, about four miles from the park in the opposite direction of where their team was located, and switched places.

The cops confront at least three years and a most extreme of 25 years in jail on the off chance that they are indicted.

NYPD Detective Eddie Martins is brought in custody for his arraignment on October 30.

"They allegedly gave her back the Klonopin pills, told her to keep her mouth shut and released her", prosecutors said.

YouTube TV Announces an App For Android TV, Smart TVs, & Xbox One
There's now no set release date, but Google says YouTube TV on Xbox One and other devices will land in "the next few days". The TV app follows the same basic layout and design language as the mobile apps, with a few exceptions.

Video surveillance shows the victim exiting the police van at approximately 8:42 p.m. The two arresting officers allegedly took the victim to their unmarked van in handcuffs, raped her, and threatened not to free her unless she complied with their sexual demands.

"It is incomprehensible that two veteran NYPD detectives would allegedly commit such an outrageous act".

Two policemen have been charged with the rape of a young woman. "We will now seek to hold them accountable for this flagrant betrayal of public trust".

Judge Danny Chun set bail at $250,000 for Martins and $150,000, and both posted bail within minutes, before silently leaving the court and getting into a silver SUV.

Attorneys for both officers noted that some of the charges appeared contradictory. "There's a lack of credibility of the alleged victim", he said.

In a press conference following the arraignment, however, Gonzalez dismissed Bederow's claim that bribery and forcible rape precluded one another.

Following the publication of this letter, Bederow declined to comment to BuzzFeed News "on anyone's characterization based on the Post article", but "caution [ed] people not to assume the accuracy of what happened simply upon unchallenged accusations". "We're aware of the allegations, and Internal Affairs is conducting an investigation into certain members of Brooklyn South narcotics", an NYPD rep said.

Martins and Hall have been placed on on desk duty and stripped of their guns.
