Cops ‘think man joking’ when he says girlfriend being raped

(INDEPENDENT) — An emergency call handler asked a man if he was joking when he reported his girlfriend’s ongoing rape by a machete-wielding attacker, it has been reported.

Police in Germany have launched a review after admitting they mishandled two emergency calls from a terrified camper who had been threatened with the knife before the rapist dragged his girlfriend away.

The officer who took his first call asked him: “You aren’t messing with me, are you?” After enquiring about his name and location, and promising to send help, the Bonn Police operator hung up, according to the Rheinische Post.
