A police officer was arrested for allegedly raping a woman while on duty, the Metropolitan Police confirmed today.
The alleged incident took place after the woman called 999 over a drunken row with her boyfriend, it was reported.
The PC, who is in his 30s, was taken to a south London police station and was later bailed.
He has been suspended pending an investigation by the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS).
