Report: NYPD Sergeant Files Sexual Harassment Complaint Against Boss

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - A sergeant in the New York City Police Department is accusing his male boss of sexually harassing him, according to a report.

According to the Daily News, Sgt. Nelson Fernandez claims Deputy Inspector Thomas Connolly has made a number of unwelcome sexual advances toward him.

Fernandez described some of the incidents to the News.

"He'll call me in for no particular reason. Then he'll lounge back with his feet up, and he puts a pen in his mouth and starts sucking on it in a sexual manner," Fernandez claimed.

According to the report, Connolly has also told Fernandez "how sexy" he looks.

Fernandez also alleges Connolly ogled his crotch and rubbed up against him on the subway.

NYPD Captains Endowment Association President Roy Richter told the News the allegations were "false and malicious," saying that Connolly is "confident that he will be fully exonerated."
