Ex-Boston police union chief arrested over child rape allegations
The former head of Boston’s police union was reportedly arrested Wednesday in connection to child rape allegations.
Patrick Rose, the one-time president of the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association and retired cop, has been charged with multiple counts of indecent assault on a child under 14, a law enforcement source told the Boston Globe.
Rose’s charges pertain to accusations that he raped a minor, according to a local ABC affiliate, WCVB.
“I am deeply disturbed by these horrific allegations, which must be investigated to the fullest extent of the law,” Boston Mayor Marty Walsh said in a statement to WCVB.
Rose joined the Boston Police Department in 1994 and was elected union president in 2016, the station reported. He retired from the force in 2018.
The former union leader is expected to be arraigned Thursday.
