Officer Christopher McCoy, now suspended without pay, initially arrested the unnamed victim on March 16, as she was the subject of several outstanding warrants linked to unresolved vehicle and traffic offenses.
After being taken to the First Precinct in Wyandanch, New York, the victim, identified only as Jane Doe, was taken into an interrogation room by McCoy where he then proceeded to press himself against her, asking "Do you feel that?" Seconds later he asked her to "kiss" his genitals, according to court papers.
McCoy, who served Suffolk County for 10 years, then allegedly forced the 31-year-old woman into performing oral sex after holding her head down, but "quickly zipped up his pants and took her out of the room" after someone walked past, the documents detailed.
The second incident occurred later the same day when McCoy, along with his partner Mark Pav, brought the victim into the same room as before. Once Pav exited, McCoy pushed himself on her, grabbed her jaw and said "Let’s go, don’t make this hard."
The terror didn’t stop there: less than two weeks later the woman began to receive text messages from an unknown number. After demanding to know the identity of the mysterious texter, McCoy messaged: "I put you [in] handcuffs … remember now?"
Though the Long Island resident first denied the allegations, he later admitted to his actions on April 6 after officials informed him they had a warrant to collect DNA samples, the criminal complaint made public Thursday revealed. A forensic examiner later indicated McCoy’s sample matched stains left on the woman’s shirt.
If convicted, McCoy could spend 10 years in prison for depriving the victim of her civil rights.
Filed in May, the woman submitted a civil lawsuit against McCoy, his partner and Suffolk County for $40 million.
Responding to the incident Thursday afternoon, Suffolk Police Commissioner Timothy Sini said the department intends to fire the officer.
"Look, this is disgusting. This is rape," Sini told reporters at police headquarters in Yaphank. "We’re not going to tolerate this, obviously."
McCoy, who wound up not entering a plea Thursday, was released on a $500,000 bond and barred from reaching out to his unnamed victim, possessing firearms and leaving the state.
FBI officials are asking any other victims McCoy may have assaulted to reach out to them.
