A pair of NYPD cops accused of raping a teenager they arrested for drugs in Brooklyn have been indicted, law enforcement sources said.
Former detectives Eddie Martins and Richard Hall allegedly raped the woman in a police van parked in a Chipotle parking lot in Coney Island on Sept. 15.
They are also charged with bribery for telling her they would let go if she did what they wanted, the sources said.
Martins and Hall are going to turn themselves in early next week, said sources – who added that the surrender was likely part of an agreement the officers made with prosecutors because they are not considered flight risks.
Once under indictment, arraignments happen in Supreme Court, which is closed until Monday.
“We look forward to defending any charges in a court of law rather than in the court of public opinion,” Martins’ lawyer, Mark Bederow, said Friday, declining to comment further.
