Seemona Sumasar claims NYPD cops protected her attacker, Jerry Ramrattan, because he was secretly working as a police informant.

They were forced to set her free in December 2010 when they discovered the robberies were an elaborate fiction. They grew out of tales spun by Ramrattan — a private eye and cop buff — who talked a ragtag group of criminal friends into helping him carry out his devious plot.

“The scheme was poorly conceived and bumblingly executed,” Sumasar’s lawyer, Nick Brustin, said in a lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Federal Court. “Authorities should have exposed it as a preposterous hoax.”
