A police officer who used confidential information to chat up an influencer after she reported a crime to his force has lost his job,
TikTok model Sarah Djuric, 19, had contacted police in Zurich, Switzerland, for help.
But she was furious when her contact details were used by one officer to send her sexy emails.
Sarah had been staying at a hotel on 3rd January when she called the police for help.
She said: “I thought the policeman would help me. I thought I was safe when the police arrived, but I was wrong. A police officer sexually harassed me.”
Sarah said she gave the officer her email address because she thought it was part of the investigation.
But she was astonished when he contacted her the same day, pestering her for a date.
She said: “At first, I thought he meant well and was courteous, so I replied to him by email.”
But she was shocked when the cop sent her a second email in which he called her a “sex bomb” and “a man’s dream”.
Sarah said: “Even when he talked to me in the hotel, I had a strange feeling, but I thought I was just imagining it.
“In retrospect, however, I know that he sexualised me from the beginning.
“I could hardly believe that something like this was happening to me, and I knew that without proof, I would not be believed.”
She then decided to get her own back and shared a TikTok video showing the conversation.
Shortly after, Sarah shared another video showing that the police had contacted her.
She said: “It was recommended to me that I should file a complaint, and I will do so.”
Head of media at the Zurich Police, Judith Hoedl, confirmed the cop had lost his job.
She said: “We distance ourselves in every way from this behaviour, which in no way corresponds to the standard that we expect from our employees.”
She said he had crossed over the line they set but did not say whether he had been fired or whether he had been allowed to resign.
Sarah only found out that the cop lost his job from the media and said: “My feelings are divided.
“On the one hand, I am pleased that the incident was dealt with properly.
“But on the other hand, I don’t jump into the air and say I’m delighted – after all, someone lost their job here.”
But she continued to underline that the cop had behaved badly, saying: “I don’t expect something like that from a police officer.”
