Two Vancouver-area police officers are being detained in Cuba for a criminal investigation involving a 17-year-old girl.

Global News has learned that the teen has complained that one of the vacationing officers, a member of the Vancouver Police Department (VPD), assaulted her near Varadero.

He and his friend, a Port Moody officer, were detained and eventually released from jail.

The Port Moody officer is allegedly a material witness.

Both the VPD and Port Moody officers have had their passports seized and they can't leave the country.

The VPD has sent an officer to investigate.
