Transit officer: I saw colleague's baton attack

BROOKLYN - An NYPD transit officer testified Monday that he saw another officer sodomize a Brooklyn man inside the Prospect Park subway station.

Officer Kevin Maloney was in the station when four NYPD officers, Richard Kern, Alex Cruz, Andrew Morales and Noel Jugraj, chased down Michael Mineo and apprehended him in 2008 after he was seen smoking marijuana.

Officer Kern, who allegedly sodomized Mineo, is charged with aggravated sexual abuse and assault. He is on trial with Cruz and Morales, who are accused of covering up the attack. They are charged with hindering prosecution and official misconduct.

Jugraj was not charged in the alleged attack.
