A man who says he was assaulted and sodomized by New York City police officers has sued the city and the department.
Tattoo parlor employee Michael Mineo filed the lawsuit Thursday and is seeking $220 million in damages for permanent and severe injuries. He says he was attacked Oct. 15 in a subway station.
Officer Richard Kern was charged with aggravated sexual abuse and assault. Officers Alex Cruz and Andrew Morales were charged with hindering prosecution and official misconduct on suspicion of covering up a crime.
All three pleaded not guilty.
A city law department official said she hadn’t seen the legal papers yet but planned to review them.
