Riverside Co. cop charged in nude swim sex assault

Posted: Updated:

INDIO, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say a Cathedral City police officer is facing criminal charges after he allegedly stripped off his uniform and jumped nude into a pool where he attempted to sexually assault a woman.

The Riverside County district attorney's office said Thursday that 37-year-old John Fox Jr. has been charged with two felonies, attempted sexual penetration and assault under the color of authority, as well as misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and sexual battery in connection with the Sept. 29 incident.

Prosecutors say Fox was responding to a noise complaint at the home when he found three women swimming in the backyard pool.

The homeowner called 911 to complain that an officer was swimming nude in the pool. Fox put his uniform back on and left the residence before his supervisor arrived.
