WARROAD, Minn. (AP) - A northern Minnesota police officer is accused of sexually assaulting a teenager many times in recent years and stalking his victim while on duty in his squad car.

The Star Tribune reports that 29-year-old Joshua M. Demmerly, of Warroad, was charged Wednesday in Roseau County District Court with kidnapping, third-degree criminal sexual conduct and stalking. The complaint says the incidents spanned from 2017 to this year.

Demmerly remains jailed in lieu of $2 million bail. Online court records do not list an attorney for Demmerly.

The complaint says the victim, now an adult, told BCA agents of more than 10 sexual assaults by Demmerly and accurately described the interior of his home, where they spent the night “on multiple occasions.”
