A Winnipeg woman is suing five RCMP officers, alleging she was pulled out of the shower and held naked while officers executed a search warrant at her home.

In a statement of claim filed last week, the woman alleges she now suffers from post traumatic stress disorder, a fear of being home alone, emotional and mental trauma and a fear of showering.

A RCMP spokeswoman declined to comment on the lawsuit as it is before the court. The spokeswoman also declined to comment whether such a scenario would be considered standard operating procedure.

The woman, identified in court documents as a hospital medical technician, alleges she was showering the morning of Sept. 21, 2012 when police entered her Springfield Road home to execute a search warrant.

Officers pulled the naked woman from a main floor bathroom and "kept (her) in the kitchen without access to covers for a period of time," the lawsuit alleges.
