OKC Police Officer Arrested, Accused Of Domestic Violence And Forcible Sodomy
An Oklahoma City police officer has been booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on multiple charges, the department said Thursday afternoon.
Luis Maldonado, a four-year veteran of the department, was arrested about 1:15 p.m. Thursday in the 4500 block of S Woodward Avenue.
Police received a tip that an officer was involved in a domestic-related incident over the weekend.
The investigation began Tuesday after the department was made aware of the incident.
“This all started as a tip from one of our detectives, and tracked this down like any other crime that we are dealing with. Just because a police officer is involved, does not mean we are not going to handle it the same way, hold them accountable, just as we would any other citizen,” said Chief of Police Wade Gourley. “I can tell you the incident occurred in Oklahoma City, started in Oklahoma City. That's how we became involved.”
Police told News 9 the assault report was filed in the City of Moore. To protect the identity of the alleged victim, much of the information is limited, but the report stated the assault took place at a home on Southwest 4th Street on August 31.
Maldonado was arrested on complaints of threatening an act of violence, kidnapping, domestic violence in the presence of a child, domestic assault and battery and forcible sodomy.
A bond will not be listed for Maldonado until he appears before a judge.
Maldonado has also been placed on paid administrative leave.
