LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 28-year-old Las Vegas police officer is facing criminal charges after women he met on routine calls accused him of abuse of authority and sexual harassment.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Wednesday that Solomon Coleman is suspended pending the outcome of criminal and internal investigations.

Coleman isn’t jailed, but is due Thursday in Las Vegas Justice Court.

He faces felony oppression under color of law and misdemeanor gross lewdness and taking pictures of a person’s private area charges.

The newspaper says at least five alleged victims had been identified during an investigation that began in June after a domestic violence victim filed a complaint.

The woman said Coleman stayed at her home after her boyfriend was arrested, and instructed her to disrobe so he could check her for bruises.
