After an on-duty, male Philadelphia police officer pulled another man over in the Fairmount Park section of the city, the 18-year-old male veteran took a man from the car to a nearby area and forced him to engage in undisclosed sexual activities, authorities said.
On Friday, police arrested fellow officer Michael Paige, 40, of the 92nd district, and charged him with unlawful restraint, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse and related offenses in connected to a March 16 traffic stop.
An internal investigation showed that Paige was in full uniform and driving a marked police cruiser when he stopped a car and took the victim to a secluded area. The alleged victim went straight to a police station to report the incident, and previous reports indicated he provided physical evidence that day.
The police department placed Paige under suspension with 30 days with intent to dismiss him, authorities said.
Paige's lawyer, Gerald S. Stanshine, said the accuser was one of two men in the car Paige pulled over, but the men were allowed to drive away and the accuser later returned to the park looking for Paige. Stanshine declined further comment on the case.
