NEW YORK (AP) — Federal authorities have arrested an NYPD narcotics detective on charges he forced the girlfriend of a drug suspect to perform a sex act in a police station bathroom.
Prosecutors also allege that Oscar Sandino victimized at least two other women under similar circumstances. He has been removed from active duty since 2008, when the allegations of lewd conduct first arose.
Sadino was arrested Tuesday on misdemeanor sexual misconduct charges. He was to appear in federal court in Brooklyn later in the day.
The name of the 37-year-old detective’s attorney was not immediately on record.
