A female cop and a seven months pregnant woman have been seized by police and accused of beating senseless the lover they did not realise they had been sharing.
Each had believed they were the only one in the two-timer’s life, local media in Miami, Florida State, USA, according to reports.
Cop Anna Elicia Perez, 34, thought she had a monogamous relationship with the cheat, who has not been named by police.
But he was also living with 35-year-old Mila Zuloaga, who is expecting his baby in August,
After hearing about each other, the pair plotted to lure their double-dealing lover to a bar at Miller’s Ale House sports bar on S. Dixie Highway in the village of Palmetto Bay, about 15 miles south of Miami, where they both confronted him.
Perez and Zuloaga reportedly ambushed their lover and a shouting match suddenly turned into a “physical confrontation”, say police.
Police documents reveal: “The officer and pregnant woman intentionally struck the victim on the face and upper body with their hands multiple times.”
The man was left with redness on his face and a small bruise to the lower lip, says the report.
Both women were arrested after the 26th May showdown and have each been charged with one count of battery.
Both were being kept in custody, reports local media.
Miami-Dade Police Director Freddy Ramirez said on 29th May: “I am disappointed by this officer’s actions. We are held to a higher standard of conduct on and off duty.
“Although this officer was off duty, her behavior was unacceptable, and it goes against the core values of our department.
“We will work closely with the State Attorney’s Office and ensure a thorough and transparent investigation.”
The 34-year-old woman has reportedly been relieved of duty with pay.
