The Tainan District Prosecutors Office is investigating an allegation involving a married police officer who allegedly attempted to molest a Vietnamese caregiver, who filed her case with police on Wednesday.
Authorities learned that about a week ago the accused officer needed to go to the toilet and stopped at the shop where the Vietnamese caregiver worked to use the bathroom, the China Daily News reported.
The Vietnamese woman led the way to the bathroom where the officer was alleged to have forced her into the unit and exposed his private parts to her.
It was alleged that the woman was ordered to remove her dress and then the officer fondled her. The woman said she was too scared to stop the man and only reported her case in the company of a Taiwanese friend on May 15.
Meanwhile, the officer denied claims he sexually abused the woman, adding that he was only using the bathroom. He did not rule out the possibility of pressing charges for false allegations to clear his name.
Given the seriousness of the allegations, and the fact that the accused and the victim had completely different statements, the Tainan District Prosecutors Office listed it as an alleged case of molestation and the investigation continues.
