A police officer accused of a string of sexual offences against women is to be charged with assaults on a teenage girl.

PC Matthew Tregale, 33, who featured in Channel 4’s Call The Cops, is accused of two offences of non-penetrative sexual activity with a female aged 15.

Devon and Cornwall Police said the charges relate to incidents in 2014. He is summonsed to appear at Plymouth Magistrates’ Court on March 8.

Tregale, of Kingsteignton, Newton Abbot, Devon, has previously appeared in court charged with four counts of sexual assault by penetration and one count of attempted rape against a woman between 2005 and 2010.

The officer, who appeared on a TV mini-series in 2019, is further accused of two counts of false imprisonment and one of harassment with the threat of violence against the same woman.

Tregale is also charged with controlling and coercive behaviour of a second woman between December 2015 and July 2020, and against a third between April 2021 and August 2021.

The court has previously heard Tregale was first interviewed in May 2020 and was placed on restricted duties but was not suspended from Devon and Cornwall Police until he was charged.
