Report: NYPD Sergeant Files Sexual Harassment Complaint Against Boss

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – A sergeant in the New York City Police Department is accusing his male boss of sexually harassing him, according to a report.

According to the Daily News, Sgt. Nelson Fernandez claims Deputy Inspector Thomas Connolly has made a number of unwelcome sexual advances toward him.

Fernandez described some of the incidents to the News.

“He’ll call me in for no particular reason. Then he’ll lounge back with his feet up, and he puts a pen in his mouth and starts sucking on it in a sexual manner,” Fernandez claimed.

According to the report, Connolly has also told Fernandez “how sexy” he looks.

Fernandez also alleges Connolly ogled his crotch and rubbed up against him on the subway.

NYPD Captains Endowment Association President Roy Richter told the News the allegations were “false and malicious,” saying that Connolly is “confident that he will be fully exonerated.”

    Fernandez is a lying lazy criminal! This is a lynching of the worst kind! If Connelly did it ALL THE TIME why didn’t the Fat Sargent wear a wire? Hidden camera? Oh, right, a Sargent of questionable decent is going to challenge a decorated un-blemished Inspctor with a mind word against his accusation needlessly? Why? All he needed was to do what any decent cop would do – “collect evidence”! What about the Two Leutenents he spoke with? Who are those racist criminals? If they exist, why would you need to go to more than one if you were the victim of such heineous crime? Why didn’t either of them suggest a wire or hidden camera?

    WOW, sounds like Connolly or Fernendez or both are batting from the fudge-packing side of the plate. Will be interesting to see how this all pans out.

    There will be a time when sexual harrassment involving men on men will become a daily occurence.When a society opens the door to condone sodomy it only widen the door to more abnormalities.Wait till the fat lady finally start singing with the situation with gays in the military.The end result is going to be very didsastrious.Mark my word for it.

    The fallout of the NYPD has no limits. Truly a disgrace by association for anyone who is currently or eventually, decides to wear that uniform.
