Law And Order: SVU Season 22 Episode 1 Recap
‘Guardians and Gladiators’ kicks off with Olivia Benson and her Special Victims Unit looking into the rape in Central Park. A White woman calls up the cops, informing them that a certain Black man is scaring her son. The accused guy happens to be an exerciser called Jayvon. The police reach the scene and handcuff the guy. Meanwhile, there is another hurt man behind some bushes. The person is named Eric Aquino, who has been sexually assaulted and he cannot identify his attacker.
Jayvon is arrested and brought to the station. He already has warrants against him — but those are for non-violent protests. And he is livid that the cops suspect him of the rape. Jayvon is eventually released but he sues the department, including Fin and Olivia. Olivia appeals to Internal Affairs but here she learns that the woman who had called them in the first place holds a history of making false reports.
Rollins and Kat find out that a guy had met up with Eric at a bar earlier that night and had gone with him to the park. That man is arrested.
