A San Francisco police officer is being investigating for an alleged sexual assault, a spokesperson for the department said Tuesday.
The incident involving an unidentified off-duty officer was reported last month, police said. Since then, the officer was assigned to a non-public contact position and his department-issued gun was taken from him.
The District Attorney’s Office is also on-board with the investigation, and could charge the officer if appropriate, police said.
Police would not release the name of the police officer, which is not a public record unless he is arrested.
