Two Cops Accused of Raping Drunk Woman

The NYPD is investigating a complaint that two police officers raped an intoxicated woman after they escorted her home to her Manhattan apartment.

The two cops responded to a cab driver's 911 call to help his drunken passenger, according to the New York Post. The officers helpd the woman to her fifth-floor apartment just after midnight on Dec. 7 and later returned to check on her condition.

When the cops came back a second time, the older officer allegedly raped the woman while his partner stood by, according to the Post.

The two officers, who have not been identified, have been placed on modified duty while prosecutors look into the allegations, according to police.

The owner of a bar near the accuser's apartment told the New York Times that the bar's video surveillance system show the two police officers helping the woman into her building and returning twice during the next two hours. The officers can be seen using a key to get into the building before the last visit. The owner said she gave the video to investigators.

The victim, who had been having drinks with female colleagues, told a friend about the alleged attack later that day and called the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, according to the Post.

A lawyer for one of the officers has denied the allegations.
