2 detectives charged in rape case quit NYC police force

NEW YORK (AP) — Two New York City police detectives accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman have quit the force.

Eddie Martins and Richard Hall resigned on Monday before they were to face an administrative proceeding that could have resulted in their firing. They were arraigned last week on kidnapping, rape and other criminal charges.

Prosecutors say that after stopping the woman in September for suspicion of drug possession, they handcuffed her, drove her around and raped her. The prosecutors say DNA evidence matches both of the former officers.

Their lawyers have said the woman's account is not credible.
