NYPD probes whether cops tried to bully rape accuser

The NYPD is investigating claims that a group of rogue cops tried to bully an 18-year-old girl out of bringing sex assault charges against two detectives who allegedly raped her.

The probe was opened one day after The Post reported a claim by Anna Chambers that nine cops visited her in the hospital in an attempt to discourage her from coming forward.

Meanwhile, a lawyer for one of the accused cops said that the women’s allegations of coercion were false.

“She was interviewed by [the Internal Affairs Bureau] on the evening of September 16,” said Mark Bederow, a lawyer for detective Eddie Martins.

“That neither she nor her mother informed IAB that other officers allegedly were obstructing justice severely discredits this allegation.

Chambers’ lawyer, Michael David, shot back that the girl’s mother had just recently disclosed the disturbing information.

“We were just recently in an official meeting concerning the mom’s recollection of events that night. That’s when it came out,” David said.

“That’s when I heard it. And when I heard it come out of the mom’s mouth, I wasn’t going to let it go.”

Chambers claims Martins and Detective Richard Hall both forced her to perform oral sex on them after she was arrested on Sept. 15.

Hall, 33, and Martins, 37, both admitted to sexual contact with the woman but claim that it was consensual.
