A police officer was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly raping numerous women over a period of nine months, police in the United Kingdom said.
Uxbridge police said that they have arrested 47-year-old Michael Graham, after being accused of sexually assaulting at least seven women.
Graham was charged with seven counts of rape and one count of assault. Graham was arrested at his home, and he was not on duty at the time.
The officer has been suspended. The offenses are alleged to have taken place over a period of nine months. Officers from the Sexual Offences Exploitation & Child Abuse are also investigating Graham.
Last year, a police officer in Texas, was arrested for raping a woman while he was dressed in his uniform.
Dallas police officer David Kattner, 44, who has worked for the department for 26 years, was arrested and charged with felony sexual assault.
An officer on patrol spotted the woman, who is a known prostitute, engage in suspicious behavior with Officer Kattner.
The prostitute was questioned, and she told police that Officer Kattner ordered her to meet him at this location to talk about outstanding warrants.
After the two met, the officer allegedly forced the woman to perform sex acts on him. The woman told police that Kattner threatened harm to her daughter if she did not comply with his demands.
The officer has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. Police are looking into whether there are more victims.
