A multi-million dollar lawsuit has been filed against Suffolk County and two police officers for an alleged sex assault at a police precinct.

WARNING: Please be aware that the details of this story are graphic.

In the lawsuit, the woman alleges that Suffolk County Police Officer Christopher McCoy forced her to perform a sex act on him at the first precinct in West Babylon. Following the alleged incident, the victim says she went to the FBI.

It allegedly happened in March of this year in an interrogation room at the precinct. The victim alleges Officer McCoy groped her and commented on her breasts and then court documents describe the following:

When the victim felt a bulge from Officer McCoy’s genital area, officer McCoy asked the victim "do you feel that?"

The officer allegedly told her to kiss his genital area, and later allegedly grabbed her head and pushed it toward his genital area.

It all allegedly started on Straight Path in Wyandanch, according to the lawsuit, when the victim was a passenger in a vehicle that was pulled over. The victim was allegedly taken into custody due to outstanding warrants for her arrest over traffic violations.

Following the alleged sex assault, according to court documents, the victim asked to be taken to a hospital for treatment where she planned on requesting a rape kit. Though the victim allegedly asked twice, she was denied, the complaint says.

Following her arrest days later, the victim alleges McCoy texted her. Court documents show Officer McCoy then texted "I put you [sic] handcuffs. . . remember now?" and then sent an "emoji" of a police officer followed by "easier now?"

The victim is suing Suffolk County, Officer McCoy and a second officer alleged to have "casual disregard" for McCoy’s alleged "illegal touching."

She is asking for millions of dollars.

The Suffolk County Police Department tells FiOS1 News McCoy has been suspended without pay and says the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau has assisted the FBI in its criminal investigation.

Suffolk County tells FiOS1 News it does not comment on pending litigation.

FiOS1 News called the Suffolk PBA in an attempt to reach the accused two officers, but were told no comment.
