WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) — A seventh woman is alleging she was sexually assaulted by a West Sacramento police officer while he was on duty.
The Sacramento Bee (http://bit.ly/1buwtDZ ) reports the 30-year-old woman has filed a federal lawsuit accusing Sergio Alvarez of forced copulation and sodomy during two separate attacks between May and September of last year.
The suit declares that Alvarez engaged in "sexually predatory conduct." The officer's attorney declined to comment Monday.
In March Alvarez entered not guilty pleas to 35 counts including rape, sodomy, oral copulation and kidnapping.
The 38-year-old Alvarez is accused of assaulting the six other women after stopping them late at night or early in the morning while on patrol between October 2011 and September 2012.
A five-month investigation began after a woman reported to another officer that she had been sexually assaulted by a uniformed policeman.
