Alexandria police officer arrested on rape, chemical attack, domestic assault charges
An Alexandria police officer has been arrested after multiple alleged domestic incidents over a six-month period.
Khurram Abbas Chaudhary, 31, was arrested and charged Friday with rape, malicious wounding by caustic substance, and domestic assault and battery by Prince William County police.
Chaudhary, a nearly four-year veteran of the Alexandria Police Department, was arrested after Alexandria police received an internal complaint last week after the domestic violence allegations and subsequently contacted Prince William County police to investigate.
According to Prince William County police, multiple domestic incidents took place between Chaudhary and a 30-year-old woman between June 2017 and January 2018 at a home in the Woodbridge area of Prince William County where they lived together.
In one of several alleged incidents, Chaudhary pushed the victim before pulling out a knife and pressing it against her victim. She was not injured in that encounter.
Police said in another incident, a verbal altercation led to Chaudhary throwing a caustic substance onto the victim, causing a burning sensation to her face, hands and feet.
A third incident accused Chaudhary of sexually assaulting the victim.
While the Alexandria Police Department said its investigation remains ongoing, it placed Chaudhary on administrative leave and removed him of his police powers Friday in relation to his arrest.
Chaudhary is being held without bond and his court date is pending.
