Officials in suburban Merrionette Park have requested that Chicago police and the Cook County State's Attorney conduct an independent criminal investigation into the case of two firefighters accused in a sexual abuse case.

Twenty-four-year old Marvin Buhle and 20-year-old Michael Haas are charged with criminal sexual abuse and attempted criminal sexual assault.

Buhle is accused of trying to rape a woman who passed out at a party Friday night in the mount greenwood community.

Haas is accused of standing guard outside a bedroom door.

Both men are Chicago residents who worked as Merrionette Park firefighters.

Merrionette Park does not have a full-time fire department.
