Oklahoma City Officer Accused Of Sexual Assault While On Duty

The Oklahoma City Police Department is investigating one of their own.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, was arrested on August 20th after allegedly sexually assaulting at least six women while on duty.

The first allegations came to light in February after a woman accused him of touching her breasts and telling her that if she "play by his rules" he would help her.

More victims came forward between May and June before he was taken off duty. According to a police chief, seven women have come forward who say he approached them or pulled them over while he was patrolling and, "force them to expose themselves, fondle them, and in at least one instance had intercourse with a woman."

The police chief and District Attorney say they believe there are more victims that have not yet come forward. Holtzclaw is reportedly still being paid but remains behind bars on a $5 million bond.
