A San Francisco police officer has been arrested on suspicion of two felony counts of rape and domestic violence, authorities confirmed Wednesday.
Simon Chan, a 22-year veteran of the San Francisco Police Department, was booked into jail last Friday by the San Bruno Police Department.
He was released several hours later after posting a $100,000 bond, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Chan is assigned to the Airport Bureau and has worked as a K-9 handler with the department.
He was placed on unpaid leave last Thursday pending an internal investigation, according Sgt. Michael Andraychak, a San Francisco police spokesperson.
A San Bruno police commander confirmed the arrest and charges Wednesday but did not immediately have further information on the case.
Wagstaffe said a sexual assault prosecutor is reviewing the case and that the office has not decided whether to file charges.
Chan is scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. July 15 in San Mateo County Superior Court.
“Since arraignment is not until July, my prosecutor will take his time and carefully review the reports and if needed, ask for additional investigation,” Wagstaffe said. “So I do not think this decision will be completed in the coming days.”
