EAST SPENCER, N.C. --
An East Spencer police officer was taken off the job after allegations of rape.
The alleged victim said the officer threatened to arrest her last Friday if she did not meet him after work. She said that when she did, the officer raped her.
That officer is on paid leave while the SBI investigates.
The city is now down to three full-time officers including the chief. "We are going to continue to do the job that we were hired to do and that is to protect the citizens of East Spencer," Chief Ron Hines said on Monday.
No charges have been filed in this case. The SBI will hand over its findings to the District Attorney once the investigation is complete.
