Apparently it’s criminal day here at SYLG. First we had a drunken scumbag college student assaulting a police officer. Now, we have a former sergeant of the Bensalem Special Victims Division accused of sexually assaulting a 23-year old woman inside the township’s Rescue Squad building.
What. The. Frak?
Michael Marren, former Sergeant of the Special Victims Division at the Bensalem Police Department is facing numerous charges stemming from an alleged incident on March 9.
According to authorities, Marren allegedly sexually assaulted a 23-year-old female incident the Bensalem Rescue Squad building in the early morning hours. An affidavit states Marren, who was off-duty and worked part-time with the rescue squad, had joined other members for a night of drinking in memory of a fellow employee.
He allegedly drove a female employee back to the squad building, where he made unwanted advances. The affidavit states Marren followed the victim into the ladies’ restroom, where she was sexually assaulted. Following the assault, authorities said the victim hid in a utility closet until fellow rescue workers arrived at the scene.
For a frame of reference, Bensalem is the township just north of Philadelphia.
You would think that after working with rape victims for years . . . ah, never mind. I’m just going to get the duct tape.
