An 18-year-old woman who accused two NYPD cops of raping her in the back seat of their police van was visited by a group of their co-workers in her hospital room in a bid to bully her out of bringing sex assault charges, her lawyer claims.
Michal David, who represents Anna Chambers, said nine police officers tried to intimidate her and her mom, “to discourage them from coming forward” to report the sex assault.
David told the New York Post one office in particular questioned Chambers’ story while she sought treatment at Maimoindes Medical Center in Brooklyn hours after the rape.
“He kept saying to Anna and her mom, ‘How do you know they were real cops?’” David said. “‘Didn’t you make complaints about cops before?’”
