City Sued Over Alleged Strip Searches by Police

September 24, 2005|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Three men who say Oakland police conducted strip searches of them in public for no reason have filed a federal class-action lawsuit against the city.

Darnell Foster, Rafael Duarte and Yancie Young said officers exposed and inspected their buttocks on busy Oakland streets in separate incidents from 2003 to 2005.

The department has since drafted a policy requiring officers to conduct searches away from public view.
