FRESNO, CALIFORNIA – A Fresno police officer was arrested on rape charges Tuesday afternoon.
Officer William Wyatt was booked into jail and charged with raping a woman — a Reedley police officer — on a date.
The woman claims it happened two years ago, and says she became aware of the alleged rape last January when Wyatt’s girlfriend told her about revealing pictures she found on Wyatt’s computer.
Wyatt was a Reedley police officer before joining the Fresno Police Department in 2003.
He has bailed out of jail and remains on paid leave.
