PC ‘put fin­ger up cop’s bot­tom’

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A PO­LICE­MAN car­ried out a sex at­tack on a fel­low cop in their own pa­rade room, by stick­ing his fin­ger up his BUM, a court heard.

PC Jeremy Fowler, 40, is ac­cused of as­sault­ing a PCSO of­fi­cer by in­sert­ing his fin­ger into his anus when he was pinned down on the floor by fel­low PC Mathew Davies.

The court was told Fowler shouted out: “Smell my fin­ger!” as other cops laughed at his ac­tions.

The court heard the male PCSO was thrown to the floor by 6ft 4in PC Davies, 38, and was then sex­u­ally as­saulted by 6ft 1in Fowler while on the floor of their po­lice sta­tion, sur­rounded by other of­fi­cers.

Bois­ter­ous

Pros­e­cut­ing Matthew Cobb said the pa­rade room was “a very busy room and some­times quite bois­ter­ous” as of­fi­cer gather at the end and be­gin­ning of shifts.

Mr Cobb said: “Mr Davies en­gaged in some ban­ter with the com­plainant, mak­ing jokes about his clothes and teas­ing him.

“He then got up from a chair and went over to him, grabbed him in a bear hug and forced him to the ground with his arms around him hold­ing him tight.

“He was re­strained on the floor and Jeremy Fowler got in­volved.

“He walked across the room and lay on his legs, keeping him pinned to the ground.

“Fowler then slipped his hand into the com­plainant’s trousers and pen­e­trated his anus with his fin­ger.

“This was sex­ual vi­o­la­tion that was tak­ing place in plain sight.”

Swansea Crown Court heard the ex­pe­ri­enced PCSO at Merthyr Tyd­fil Po­lice Sta­tion, South Wales, was due to be­come a “fully-fledged po­lice con­sta­ble” around the time in June 2014.

Fowler, of Bre­con, Powys, de­nies as­sault by pen­e­tra­tion, claim­ing it was “horse­play”.

The trial con­tin­ues.
