Detectives in Manchester say their colleague who was detained in relation to the abduction of a woman is to be charged this week.

The accused Constable, who is attached to the Manchester Division, was arrested on the weekend.

It’s alleged that he abducted a woman and kept her at his home for several days, during which he reportedly assaulted her repeatedly.

The police say they are completing preliminary investigations with a view to charging the policeman.

The Inspectorate of the Constabulary, who has responsibility for internal disciplinary matters, has also taken note of the case and is working closely with detectives in Manchester.
