Officials from the New York City Police said that an officer has been arrested on charges of raping a 25-year-old teacher in an apartment backyard.

Michael Pena, the accused officer, was not on duty at the time of committing the crime and was jailed after the incident on Friday morning in the Inwood section of Manhattan, a Daily Mail report stated.

The woman was tricked by the accused officer who approached her asking directions initially, showed her a gun and dragged her several blocks to the backyard, where he raped her.

The woman ran towards the officers screaming He raped me, and be careful he has a gun, reported the New York Daily.

Pena, an officer since 2008, asked the woman for directions and told her, You're coming with me.

One of the residents heard the noises that did not sound like consensual sex and called 911, said the police, according to the report.

The department said the officer has been suspended without pay.
