Police Officer Accused Of Sexual Assaults While On Duty


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer has been arrested and is being held in lieu of $5 million bond after being accused of committing a series of sexual assaults against at least six women while on duty.

The Oklahoman reports that Daniel Ken Holtzclaw was arrested Thursday on complaints of rape, forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery and indecent exposure.

Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty says Holtzclaw stopped women while he was working and forced them to expose themselves, fondled them and in at least one instance had intercourse with a woman.

Citty says authorities have statements from six victims and expect one from a seventh. Investigators believe there are additional victims.

The Oklahoma County District Attorney says he anticipates charges will be filed by Aug. 29.
