A criminal investigation has been launched by Internal Affairs and the FBI against a patrol officer assigned to the 1st Precinct. The Suffolk County Police Office is accused of sexually assaulting a woman inside his precinct while his partner allegedly looked the other way. The woman, an African-American in her 30’s, was stopped by the white officers.
“This is a routine traffic stop in the morning, and it results, before noon, in a vicious assault in the precinct,” said Brian Egan, a lawyer for the alleged victim. “It happened twice inside the precinct while she was alone with this officer,” he added.
The suspended officer has been identified as Christopher A. McCoy, a husband, and father.
McCoy and his partner allegedly stopped the vehicle and asked the occupants for ID’s. The passenger, the alleged victim, was told she had an outstanding traffic violation and was taken by patrol car to the precinct, where she says her chest was groped, and once inside the interrogation room, she was forced to perform oral sex.
The civil lawsuit claims McCoy’s partner knew what was going on and did nothing to stop it.
According to the woman, the cop began sending her text messages after the assault.
