Newburgh Heights, OH – A television news crew who stalked a rape victim at her home has complained that the bodycam video police released of the incident has caused their news station to receive threats of violence (video below).
The chief of the Newburgh Heights Police Department released body cam video on Friday from his encounter with a News 5 Cleveland (WEWS-TV) news crew at a place they didn’t belong.
In the video, Chief John Majoy was responding to a distress call from a recent rape victim in his jurisdiction who said the television crew had descended on her home wanting an interview, according to a video posted to the Newburgh Heights PD’s official Facebook page on Friday.
“Deplorable behavior by News Channel 5 Cleveland for randomly showing up at the home of a rape victim; watch the police chief’s response. After being confronted by the Chief of Police for their callous, insensitive conduct, News Channel 5 apologized to the victim through the Chief of Police. This video was released with the consent of the victim in hopes that her privacy and that of all victims is honored and respected. The victim is not shown in any part of this video,” the department posted as the description of the video on June 29.
Watch the encounter below, as Chief John Majoy rips into the television crew and tells them to hit the road.
