Cops charged with rape, buggery

Two police constables have been slapped with charges of rape and buggery. It is alleged that on May 12, 2017 they assaulted a 19-year-old woman after driving her to Five Islands despite her pleas to let her go.

The assault allegedly took place in the back of a car near a nightclub.

Back in 2017, the young woman had told OBSERVER media the officers who were are known to her, struck her in the face, brandished a gun and threatened to kill her if she reported the matter to the police or anyone else.

When the investigation began, police sources had said the officers were likely to be charged with rape, buggery, assault, serious indecency and kidnapping.

A medical report shared with OBSERVER media last year highlighted the woman’s bruises and black and blue eye and supported the allegations she made against the junior ranking policemen.
