An NYPD cop has sued a rape victim for allegedly damaging his reputation after her reports of being groped during an investigation.
According to the New York Daily News officer Lukasz Skorzewski and Lt. Adam Lamboy went to Seattle for an interview of the rape victim who claims she was attacked in N.Y.'s Union Square.
The 25 year old victim alleged that the two married officers offered her out for drinks.
"Looking back, it was totally naive of me to join them," she said. "But I was like, 'This is really cool.' I really looked up to them."
The trio bar hopped all night, and extended the invitation to stay at their hotel due to her intoxicated state, and being unable to drive.
She said the officers told her, "No, no, you'll be safe with us. Come back to our hotel, you can crash with us."
The unnamed victim recalls that she woke up the next morning at the Embassy Suites in Bellevue, Wash. and Officer Skorzewski climbed in the bed with her.
"I really want to kiss you right now," she said the officer told her.
"He was insistent on feeling me up… He tried to work his way up my pants, I pushed his hand away," she said.
She also states that Skorzewski called her his "favorite rape victim" and harrassed her with consistent phone calls after he made his ways back to N.Y.
The two officers were later demoted and suspended 10 days without pay.
"I think what he did was bad enough that he shouldn’t be a cop," the victim told the New York Daily News.
Today, Skorzewski is suing the victim for $2 million, stating that the story she gave the press are false. Peter Brill, Skorzewski's Attorney said that her interview with the New York Daily News ruined his client’s reputation.
"We believe the statements she made to the Daily News are significantly more salacious than the statements she made to the police," Brill said. "He's being made out to be a monster when he made a slight error in judgment. He had social dealings with a complainant when he shouldn't have, but he did not engage in sexual misconduct with her."
The unidentified victim also filed a $3 million lawsuit against the city of N.Y. in addition.
