Officer Eduardo Bermudez, 29, was arrested about 8 a.m. Sunday by Internal Affairs Division investigators on $100,000 bail looking into "allegations of criminal activity" taking place at an "unofficial after party," at a hotel near LAX, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement.
Bermudez bailed out at 11:40 p.m. on Sunday.
After a sanctioned LAPD Pacific Area holiday party on Saturday night ended, several department employees went to an unsanctioned after-party at the hotel, where the alleged rape occurred, police said.
"The alleged victim is also a police officer," police Chief William Bratton told KCAL-TV today.
Bermudez, who has been with the department for two years and is assigned to the Pacific Area Patrol Division, was booked at the Men's Central Jail on suspicion of attempted rape.
Bratton declined to say whether the alleged victim also works in the Pacific Division.
