Four Colombian policemen have been arrested and jailed for allegedly sexually abusing and torturing a minor, local media reported Sunday.
According to the complaint filed by the 16-year-old victim, the officers broke in to her home where the policemen intimidated her with guns before she was forced to perform oral sex.
“I was home alone when I heard knocks on the door, they almost broke it down. Next thing four armed men came in, they put a gun to my head, made me get on my knees and pushed me into the bathroom where they forced me to perform oral sex on them,” the victim was quoted as saying by news agency Colprensa.
The torture and sexual abuse took place in the central Colombian city of Ibague, the capital of the Tolima department in March.
The four policemen, who all belong to the local Metropolitan Police department, have been charged with sexual assault, torture and abuse of power.
