A Miami Police officer was arrested Wednesday on charges of armed sexual battery by a law enforcement officer and armed kidnapping, authorities said.
Luis Hernandez, 27, a seven-year member of the police department, was arrested by internal affairs detectives after DNA evidence backed up a woman's claims he kidnapped and sexually battered her in November 2011, police said.
Police documents note the victim told investigators that Hernandez, dressed in police uniform, removed his duty belt and exposed himself. According to the victim, the officer then told her to "get down," a demand, she believed, for oral sex.
The victim refused, and she claimed Hernandez began fondling her private parts. According to police, she said he then ordered her to turn around, and she begged him to stop.
Officer Luis Hernandez, 27, was arrested Wednesday and charged with armed kidnapping and sexual battery by a law enforcement officer. DNA found on the woman linked him to the attack, prosecutors said.
His arrest comes as the Miami Police Department has sought to clean house amid a series of scandals involving officer misconduct.
Internal affairs Detective Herminia Salas-Jacobson noted that there were 34 minutes of “unaccounted time” that Hernandez had the woman in his control.
