DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas police officer has been arrested for sexual assault, accused of using his position as a peace officer to force prostitutes to perform sexual acts while he worked an extra job.

Police said Officer David Kattner was arrested early Sunday morning. The 47-year-old remained in Dallas County jail on $50,000 bond Sunday afternoon. Jail records did not list an attorney for him.

Police say Kattner, a 26-year veteran of the department, will be placed on administrative leave pending the results of the ongoing investigation.

Police say as the investigation continues, detectives will try to determine if there are other victims.

Ron Pinkston, president of the Dallas Police Association, says “we trust that the officer will be given his due process as part of an in-depth and transparent inquiry.”
