DES MOINES, Iowa – A Des Moines police officer has been arrested on charges that he tried to sexually assault a woman while on duty.

Officer Maynard Richardson has been charged with assault with intent to commit sexual abuse and nonfelonius conduct.

Richardson, who has served in the department for two years, is accused of trying to sexually assault a 19-year-old woman early Friday while he was in uniform and in his patrol car.

Police Chief Judy Bradshaw says the woman was not harmed. The woman called police about 6:30 a.m. Friday.

The 35-year-old Richardson has been placed on paid administrative leave.

Bradshaw says Richardson was suspended for two days last year after being involved in inappropriate conduct involving a citizen.

    Typical of the News Media , slant everything against the Officer. They can't even get her age right , this report says 19 years old and the video says 22 years old. Typical Liberal Press.

    So the woman called police and he was immediately arrested? Not enough information here. This all sounds a bit ridiculous.

    it is so sad to see that there are some officers that do not deserve to wear a badge and there are some of us that it is our dream to wear one and we can't.

    Remember boys and girls. We set the standard for others to follow. Do not allow yourself to be placed into this type of situation. Granted there are morons out there that just love to cast false accusations against us. Alway has been, always will be. If you follow your department policy, your training, and good morals to the letter you will always win.
