A Metropolitan Police officer has been charged with 13 more criminal offences against women. 

David Carrick, 46, is now facing a total of 14 charges, including rape, false imprisonment and controlling behaviour, after three more alleged victims came forward. 

The suspended officer was initially charged with one count of rape following a complaint by a separate woman last month.  

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the 13 additional offences are alleged to have taken place between 2017 and 2020.

In relation to the first new alleged victim, Carrick is charged with two counts of rape, one count of coercive and controlling behaviour, one count of false imprisonment, one count of sexual assault, one count of assault by penetration and one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent.

In relation to the second, he is charged with one count of assault by penetration, one count of sexual assault and one count of attempted sexual assault by penetration.

And in relation to the third, he is charged with one count of rape, one count of sexual assault and one count of coercive and controlling behaviour.

Peter Burt, senior district crown prosecutor for CPS Thames and Chiltern, said: ‘Following a referral of evidence by Hertfordshire Constabulary, the CPS has now charged David Carrick with a total of 14 alleged offences against four women.

‘We remind all concerned that criminal proceedings against the defendant are active and that he has a right to a fair trial. 

‘It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings.’

Carrick, from the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command, previously ’emphatically denied’ attacking the first woman who filed a complaint. 

Commissioner Cressida Dick said last month, when the charge was announced: ‘I am deeply concerned to hear the news today that an officer from the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command has been arrested and now charged with this serious offence. 

‘I fully recognise the public will be very concerned too.

‘Criminal proceedings must now take their course so I am unable to comment any further at this stage.’

The Crown Prosecution Service reminded anyone speculating on the case on social media that they could be prosecuted for contempt of court.
