SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego police officer has been arrested for investigation of false imprisonment and sexual battery of four women.

U-T San Diego reports (https://bit.ly/1bDhQwi ) Officer Christopher Hays’ arrest came as two more women claimed that he sexually harassed or assaulted them.

Police Chief Bill Landsowne said the 30-year-old officer turned himself in Sunday and was booked into jail. He was released on $130,000 bail.

Landsowne said the case against Hays came after a woman filed a report in December.

He said prosecutors were investigating claims by the two women who came forward over the weekend.

Hays could face up to 7 1/2 years in jail if convicted.

He has been placed on unpaid administrative leave.
