Justine Damond's last moments caught on tape

Justine Damond's two 'panicked' 911 calls over 'rape'

AUSTRALIAN woman Justine Damond made two calls to 911 the night she was shot dead by a Minneapolis police officer because she feared that a neighbour was being raped.

A transcript of the two fateful calls was released Wednesday afternoon, US time.

"Hi, I'm, I can hear someone out the back and I'm not sure she's having sex or being raped," Ms Damond, 40, said in the first call made at 11.27pm.

"I think she just yelled out 'help', but it's difficult; the sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don't think she's enjoying it."

The 911 operator asked Ms Damond to describe what she was hearing.

"It sounds like sex noises, but it's been going on for a while and I think she tried to say 'help' and it sounds distressed," she said.

Ms Damond called again at 11.35pm.

"911, what's the address of the emergency?" the operator asked.

"Hi, I just reported one, but no one's here and was wondering if they got the address wrong," Ms Damond replied.
