A Metropolitan Police officer who was charged with rape has been accused of sexually assaulting another three women, prosecutors have said.
David Carrick, 46, is accused of 13 offences relating to three alleged victims between 2017 and 2020, and is due to appear via videolink at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
He is already facing a charge of rape relating to a fourth woman, which he denies.
We remind all concerned that criminal proceedings against the defendant are active and that he has a right to a fair trial
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said on Wednesday that it had authorised 13 more charges against Carrick, which are:
– two counts of rape, one count of coercive and controlling behaviour, one count of false imprisonment, one count of sexual assault, one count of assault by penetration and one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent against a woman referred to as complainant A
– one count of assault by penetration, one count of sexual assault and one count of attempted sexual assault by penetration against a second, complainant B
– one count of rape, one count of sexual assault and one count of coercive and controlling behaviour in relation to a third, complainant C.
Peter Burt, Senior District Crown Prosecutor for CPS Thames and Chiltern, said: “Following a referral of evidence by Hertfordshire Constabulary the CPS has now charged David Carrick with a total of 14 alleged offences against four women.
“We remind all concerned that criminal proceedings against the defendant are active and that he has a right to a fair trial. It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.”
