A POLICEMAN has been charged with rape and a number of other offences.
Andrew Broom, aged 43, appeared at Norwich Magistrates' Court accused of five counts of rape, indecent assault and threatening behaviour.
Norfolk Constabulary said those offences all relate to a single female victim and are not linked to his role as a police officer.
The 43-year-old is also charged with three offences of breaching the Data Protection Act.
A Norfolk police spokesman said: “We can confirm that a Norfolk officer has today appeared in court charged with a number of serious offences.
“The officer is currently suspended from duty pending the outcome of criminal and disciplinary proceedings. It would be inappropriate to comment further while proceedings remain active.”
