Disgraced NYPD cop on probation arrested for sex abuse
A disgraced NYPD cop who is on probation for a perjury conviction last year was arrested for undressing a woman while she slept in his car, The Post has learned.
Ex-detective Kevin Desormeau, 35, was charged with sexual abuse last week in connection to the April 7 attack in Midtown, authorities said.
Desormeau allegedly violated the 35-year-old victim after she fell asleep inside his parked car on West 36th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues around 5:45 a.m., according to a Manhattan Criminal Court complaint.
When the woman woke up inside the car, her top and bra were pulled down, exposing her breasts — and Desormeau’s pants were pulled down with his underwear visible, the complaint says.
The victim also had scratches to her neck, chest and shoulder, court records state.
When the woman attempted to pull her top back up, Desormeau grabbed her wrist with his hand, according to the court document.
The victim tried to jerk her arm from Desormeau’s grasp — and when he let go, her hand came flying back and hit her in the mouth, causing a swollen lip, the complaint said.
Desormeau was arrested for the incident on April 25 — the same day that the victim reported the crime, according to law enforcement sources.
The relationship between Desormeau and the victim was not immediately clear.
Jail records show that Desormeau was released after posting $20,000 bail. His lawyer, Robert Jones, declined to comment on his arrest when reached by The Post Thursday.
Desormeau, a Long Island resident, copped two separate sweetheart no-jail deals in April of last year after he was convicted of lying under oath in a 2014 drug case in Queens and a 2014 gun case in Washington Heights.
In the Queens case, Desormeau was sentenced to three years of probation and fined $500, while in the Manhattan case he was sentenced to three years of probation and 10 days of community service.
Desormeau was subsequently axed from the police force.
Family members of Desormeau declined to comment on his latest arrest, but Desormeau’s brother said the former cop currently works as a plumber.
A longtime neighbor who asked not to be named called the latest incident “so sad.”
“The family doesn’t cause any trouble…Hopefully it’s not true,” the neighbor said.
