Police officer arrested over rape claim
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).
The Sun reported that the woman, in her 20s, was left alone with the officer in her south London flat after his colleagues arrested her boyfriend for allegedly assaulting her.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "On Saturday, September 19, an MPS police constable was arrested on suspicion of rape. The alleged incident occurred whilst the officer was on duty."
