The female cop keeps chewing her gum before asking if the guy wants an ‘ambo’
The video shows two officers standing behind the counter as the man makes his report.
A female cop slowly chews her gum and blows a bubble while her male colleague stands in front of him with a notepad.
“Everything you tell me makes you seem very paranoid and delusional,” he says.
‘How do you feel now?’
There is a brief moment of silence before the man off camera responds to the officer.
“Do you tell everyone they’re paranoid and delusional when they come in here to report a rape?” he says.
The female cop continues to chew on her gum before asking if the man wants an ‘ambo’.
“No,” the man replies. “I wanted a restraining order.”
The man then proceeds to ask if he can have his notepad back before collecting his things and leaving the station.
Footage of the encounter horrified social media users who criticized the officers’ behavior.
“Like she’s just popping gum,” one wrote. “What condition is this in?”
Another person added: ‘No one deserves to be treated this way, especially not by ‘professionals’.
A spokesman for the New South Wales Police said the matter is under investigation.
“NSW Police are aware of a short video showing part of a longer exchange with agents,” they said. “The investigation continues.”
