A Detroit police officer is charged in the rape of a woman who called 911 to report being assaulted by her boyfriend.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 40-year-old Deon Nunlee was arraigned Friday on second-degree criminal sexual conduct, assault and misconduct charges.

Nunlee and his partner responded about 3 a.m. on Oct. 30 to a domestic disturbance complaint at a Detroit home.

The 31-year-old woman says she was sexually assaulted in an upstairs bedroom by one officer while another officer remained downstairs with her boyfriend. The woman told investigators the officer who sexually assaulted her said he would return later.

A telephone number for Nunlee wasn’t listed. Police officials planned to comment later in the afternoon.

An April 17 preliminary examination has been scheduled.
