A police officer in North Carolina's largest city has been charged with sexually assaulting two female motorists he pulled over with his squad car.
The Charlotte Observer reported Thursday that Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Marcus Jackson was arrested at police headquarters. The 25-year-old Jackson had been an officer since 2008.
The case began after a relative reported Monday that a 17-year-old girl said she was ordered into Jackson's car, driven to another site, and assaulted.
Jackson was charged with sexual battery, second-degree sex offense, extortion, kidnapping, indecent exposure and two counts of felonious restraint.
Police Chief Rodney Monroe says he encourages other potential victims to come forward.
