An eight-year veteran of the D.C. police force was indicted on nine counts of sexual assault in cases involving three women, the U.S. attorney’s office announced Thursday.
Prosecutors allege that Larry Seay, 37, a 3rd District patrol officer, assaulted the women while on duty and in uniform on six occasions between Sept. 11, 2006, and July 22, 2010.
A D.C. grand jury indicted Seay on Wednesday, and a judge issued a bench warrant for his arrest. Seay turned himself in during a hearing Thursday in D.C. Superior Court, and a judge released him after ordering court supervision, requiring him to stay away from the alleged victims and demanding that he turn over any firearms in his possession.
Seay’s indictment and charges were made public after his court appearance. His next appearance is scheduled for Sept. 16.
According to the indictment, Seay approached the women on the street and ordered them to follow him to a more secluded location. At that point, Seay allegedly threatened each woman, led them to fear arrest and sexually assaulted them.
