Other cops have reported seeing a woman and girl covered in blood at an Argentinian police academy
A trainee police officer claims she was attacked by a ghost which grabbed and scratched her during a night shift. The supposed attack took place in a room where other cadets have also reported spooky encounters.
One claims to have seen the figures of a woman and a girl covered in blood. Maria Fernanda, 25, was on midnight guard duty at the Police Training Academy in Buenos Aires, Argentina when she claims to have heard a scratching sound coming from one of the lecture rooms.
When she called her boss he told her to wait outside while he checked. But seeing nothing unusual inside he told her not to worry and went back to his office. Freaked out Fernanda said: "No sooner had my boss gone than I heard the noise again.
"I pulled my service revolver out and went in and then I saw this black shadow flying across the room towards me. "Before I could react it grabbed me and I screamed and ran full pelt to the bathroom where I locked myself in. "I then noticed there was blood on my face, arms and chest and realised it had scratched me."
Fernanda immediately reported the incident to her superiors who began an investigation.
A police spokesman for the academy said: "This is not the first report we have had of strange sightings in that part of the building.
"Another cadet also reported seeing a black shadow while another said she had seen a woman and a girl covered in blood.
"In one of the bunk beds she found some blood stains and claw marks and others have reported seeing ghostly figures disappear.
"But this is the first time one of our cadets has been physically assaulted.
"We are looking into it."
