The detective, a 10-year veteran assigned to the Internal Affairs Bureau, was arrested Friday after the woman made a 911 call from his Brooklyn home asking for an ambulance, the source said.
When it arrived, the woman, who was apparently intoxicated, told the crew nothing happened, the source said. An NYPD patrol car also responded, sparking an investigation, and the rape allegation, the source said. The alleged assault took place in Brooklyn’s 69th Precinct in Canarsie.
The Brooklyn district attorney’s office pressed charges over the objections of ranking IAB officials, who had concerns about the woman’s account, the source said.
The unidentified officer was arraigned in Brooklyn Criminal Court Saturday, according to the source.
