This shocking video shows the moment two cops are caught in the act having dragged a 16-year-old girl into their patrol vehicle to molest her, resulting in them being arrested and removed from their positions.
The teen victim has reportedly testified to the public prosecutor’s office that she was sexually abused in the police pickup truck by two officers, as indicated by the video that was taken by a local kiosk owner who filmed the incident.
The shocking scenes took place in the neighbourhood of Las Palmeras in the city of General Jose de San Martin in the northern Argentine province of Chaco.
The footage, widely circulated on 29th July, appears to show two half-naked police officers in a patrol vehicle with a teenage girl.
They hide their face when a torch is shone on them and promptly flee the scene in the cop car after letting the teen out.
The cameraman asks the girl if they were raping her and she responds in the affirmative, adding that she was dragged into the vehicle.
After the case came to light, prosecutor Andrea Langellotti began a search for the girl, her parents, and the resident who filmed the incident and they were quickly tracked down.
The public prosecutor’s office also ordered the seizure of the suspects’ underwear and clothing as the investigation continues.
In the meantime, the suspected officers, named as First Sergeant Rodolfo Ariel Luna, 42, and Officer Martin Pera, 24, have been removed from their positions and are currently being held in custody.
