Two Phoenix Police Department officers have been fired after an internal report revealed inappropriate sexual advances against a woman.
Phoenix radio station KTAR says the incident occurred last July.
The internal investigation report obtained by KTAR says Phoenix police Officers Michel Cruz and John Urban stopped a bikini-clad woman after she fled from a rear-end collision. // <![CDATA[//
The report said the officers handcuffed the woman, drove her back to the accident scene for paperwork, then drove her to a secluded spot at an elementary school, where Cruz allegedly fondled her.
The alleged victim claimed she was handcuffed, that contact was not consensual and that Urban watched without doing anything to stop it.
The report said the woman was given a ticket and dropped off at a nearby store.
