A teenage girl who claims two NYPD cops raped her in handcuffs at Coney Island has come forward on Twitter to describe her ‘shock’ at their claim it was consensual.
The 18-year-old girl, who tweets under the name Anna Chambers, shared several links on Friday to stories about the horrifying claims, including one by DailyMail.com, writing ‘SHARE THIS, yes its about me’.
That tweet has since been deleted, and the girl declined to offer her real name, but her lawyer Michael David confirmed the account was authentic.
‘She was shocked that the [cops] would say it was consensual after everything that was done to her. She wanted to get the word out,’ David told the New York Post.

‘She just wants everybody to know it’s an absolute lie that this was consensual. She was raped. She was viciously, brutally raped in handcuffs. It’s the truth.’
‘She’s embarrassed. She’s very depressed over this. Her whole life had changed after this experience. She’s afraid of the police, and she really wants justice to be served here.’
The teen says she was violated in the parking lot of a Chipotle on September 15
Meanwhile, the two detectives at the center of the shocking claims have been identified as Brooklyn South narcotics squad members Richard Hall and Eddie Martins, the Post reported.
They and their supervisor have been placed on modified duty, stripped of badges and shields, as the investigation unfolds.
The two detectives, from the NYPD’s Brooklyn South narcotics squad, did not deny the sexual acts but claimed they were consensual, sources told the Post.
The teen claims that one of the cops raped her, and that both men forced her to give them oral sex in the parking lot of a Chipotle after they caught her smoking pot on Coney Island on September 15.
The young woman says she sought help from NYU Langone Hospital, in New York, after the incident.
She also spoke to a friend about the alleged sexual assault and reported it to the cops.
Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office is now investigating the teen’s claims, alongside the Internal Affairs Bureau which has already called several police officers in for questioning, law enforcement sources said.
The head of the local detectives union declined to comment, citing the ‘active investigation going on.’
