A police officer in Pennsylvania in a detailed email to 900 other officers on the force accused a coworker of raping her while off-duty at a party, WPXI reports.

The unnamed Pittsburgh police officer said the alleged assault occurred in the Summer 2021, and was subsequently granted a temporary protection order from her unnamed attacker, the outlet reports.

The male officer accused has not been charged, but was suspended for three days per a recommendation by then-Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich, the report explains. The chief reportedly suggested firing him.

Both officers appeared in court on Friday, March 18 for a hearing on a new protection order request, according to the outlet, but no decision has been reached as of Tuesday, Mar. 22.
