The victim in the alleged sexual assault by an LAPD officer at a hotel near LAX is also an LAPD officer, their chief said today.
Pacific Division Officer Eduardo Bermudez, 29, was arrested about 8 a.m. Sunday and held on $100,000 bail. He bailed out late Sunday.
The incident occurred shortly after a sanctioned LAPD Pacific Area holiday party ended. Some went to an unsanctioned after-party at the hotel, where an alleged rape
occurred, police said.
"The alleged victim is also a police officer," police Chief William Bratton told KCAL-TV
Bratton declined to say whether the alleged victim also works in the Pacific Division.
He is scheduled to appear in Los Angeles Superior Court at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 6.
