BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- (WPIX) -- Two New York City Police detectives have been indicted for allegedly raping a teenager in a police van in Coney Island last month after handcuffing her and placing her under arrest, acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said Monday.
According to the investigation, on Sept. 15, around 7:30 p.m., Detective Eddie Martins, 37, and Detective Richard Hall, 32, were on duty and riding in a Dodge Caravan, as part of a team of plainclothes narcotics detectives. They left their post and drove to Calvert Vaux Park in Gravesend, Brooklyn.
Once they got there, Gonzalez said at a news conference on Monday afternoon, they carried out a variety of crimes. "Kidnapping this young lady," the acting D.A. said, "and sexual acts took place inside a police vehicle against her will."
