DENVER (AP) - Authorities say a Denver police officer has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.

The police department said Wednesday that 31-year-old Davin Munk faces charges including multiple counts of sex assault and felony menacing stemming from an incident that happened while he was off-duty in late April.

Police say Munk, a 3-year veteran of the force who had been patrolling northeast Denver, has been suspended without pay pending the outcome of the criminal case.

Investigators say another Colorado police agency brought the case to their attention and they interviewed the victim Tuesday afternoon. Court records show he was being held in jail Wednesday on $650,000 bond. They don’t list an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
