The Daily Post Newspaper says the former officer is in custody for alleged unlawful sexual intercourse after a friend asked him to drop off the alleged victim at her home.

A preliminary hearing heard that the suspect threatened the victim not to report the incident but she filed a complaint against him with the police.

The suspect will appear in court next month.
