A San Francisco police officer was under arrest Thursday night and reportedly under investigation by Concord authorities on a molestation charge.
While no one would speak publicly on the case, KTVU learned the officer was arrested Tuesday by Concord police and suspended the same day by the San Francisco Police Department.
Authorities on both sides of the Bay were refusing to name the officer or the specifics of the charge, but KTVU has learned it involves a molestation allegation that is being investigated by Concord Police Department's Special Victim's Unit.
The arrest has also prompted an internal affairs investigation by San Francisco police.
"There is an off-duty officer who was arrested for alleged criminal conduct," said SFPD spokesman Officer Albie Esparza. "The officer is currently suspended pending an investigation."
The San Francisco Police Officers Association did not return KTVU's call. A member of the city's police commission said the case has not yet come to their attention.
The whereabouts of that officer was unclear Thursday evening.
A Concord police investigator KTVU spoke to Thursday afternoon would not comment on the current status of the arrested officer.
The jail in Martinez said the officer was not booked after his arrest, though police are often able to process suspects at the station.
As of early Thursday night, no case had been presented to Contra Costa County prosecutors. SF police said this was still a very active investigation.
