Mrs. Piper (pictured with her friend Jay Humberstone) was asked by a female officer to take off her bra and underpants and then asked to & # 39; squat and cough & # 39;
"She hooked her fingers into the bottom of the bra and pulled it out a little and gave it a good wobble and wig around," Mrs. Piper said The Guardian.
& # 39; But the way she grabbed my bra and pulled it on and shook it a bit felt pretty good.
& # 39; It was whole, it was really a violation. It really made me uncomfortable. And you know, I didn't know it wasn't allowed, I didn't know I could say no. & # 39;
Mrs. Piper, who now lives in Port Macquarie on the mid-north coast of New South Wales, claims that her parents were not told that she would be searched for a comic.
The law in NSW allows the police to stop, search and hold anyone if officers have reasonable grounds or a reasonable suspicion to perform the search – but a parent or guardian must be present while searching for a minor .
The claims of Mrs. Piper come after data showed that the search for comics in NSW has almost doubled in the last four years.

Data released by the Redfern Legal Center, showed that 3,919 women were searched by the police between 2016 and 2019, including two 12-year-old girls and one 72-year-old woman.
A total of 122 girls between the ages of 12 and 17 were searched by the police, which corresponds to three percent of all searches.
On Wednesday, NSW police minister David Elliot defended the rights of officers to conduct cartoon investigations – saying that he wanted his own children to be subjected to it.
& # 39; I have young children and if I thought the police thought they were at risk of doing something wrong, I would like them to be searched for & he said to reporters.
