Police Investigate Alleged Double Rape in Independence

Joseph Myvett

There is a disturbing report coming out of Independence tonight. The troubling incident reportedly involves at least two cops attached to the Independence Police Station. Two females were allegedly raped inside the station sometime over the weekend. Sources say that the women were taken into the station where a female police officer allegedly orchestrated the rape by instructing them to take off their clothes. That officer left and two male cops proceeded to commit the rape. The women were taken to the Southern Regional Hospital for a medical examination and they gave statements to the police about the incident. Police have been tight-lipped about this very serious matter and all they would say today is that they have received two reports of rape and that an investigation is ongoing. Here’s what ACP Joseph Myvett had to say:

 

ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“I can confirm` to you that the police have received two reports of rape and a joint investigation is being carried out by the professional standards branch and C.I.B.”

 

Reporter

“Has there been any medical examination at this time; or can you speak on that if indeed there was a forcible?”

 

ACP Joseph Myvett

“I think that at this point in time as a consequence of the stage, I will not want to prejudice the investigation so I will not speak on that matter.”
