NEW YORK—A New York police officer is suing the department, claiming she was punished for rejecting her superior’s sexual advances after he texted her a photo of his penis.
Officer Lisette Pedrosa said Lt. Salvatore Marchese began sexually harassing her in February 2010 when the two worked together at the 25th Precinct in East Harlem.
Pedrosa told sources she complained to the department’s internal affairs office, but after more than a year nothing has been done. Now she’s telling her story and preparing a sexual harassment lawsuit.
“He said he wanted me in plain clothes so we could go in his private vehicle to look for graffiti,” Pedrosa said of the 45-year-old Marchese. “He said he wanted people to get used to us being together.”
