DENVER (CBS4) – A 31-year-old officer with the Denver Police Department has been arrested for investigation of sexual assault.
The department says they learned of the alleged assault from another police agency.
Police announced the arrest of Officer Davin Munk, 31, early Wednesday afternoon after interviewing the alleged victim on Tuesday. The incident happened last month.
Munk’s fellow officers took him into custody. He tentatively faces multiple counts of sexual assault, a felony, and a count of felony menacing that all stem from the same incident.
Munk has been with the department since 2013. He most recently was assigned to patrol in northeast Denver.
On Monday, the Denver Police Department received information from another police agency in Colorado that he had been the perpetrator of a sexual assault involving a weapon at the end of April. Police told CBS4 the alleged victim is known to Munk.
Police haven’t release much more information.
“That’s what we have to do — talk to witnesses, ‘Hey, was he here? Was he there? Was he not here? Was he not there?’ Because we have to prove, we have to be able to present all the facts of the case without them being tainted,” Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told CBS4.
Upon CBS4’s request, police did release Munk’s disciplinary history with the Denver Police Department which shows four incidents. One internal complaint filed just this past December alleges inappropriate force. In another complaint filed in February of 2015, Munk was suspended for four days for “prejudicial conduct.”
He has been suspended without pay while an investigation into the case continues. His mugshot is not currently being released.
Munk appeared in court where his bond was set at $650,000. Additional court dates will not be scheduled until charges have been filed.
