On the evening of October 19, members of Milwaukee Police Department’s Internal Affairs Division arrested Milwaukee Police Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown after criminal charges were filed against him earlier in the day.
On August 15, a victim reported to Milwaukee Police he had been sexually assaulted by Heaggan-Brown while off-duty. This investigation, conducted by MPD’s Internal Affairs Division and Sensitive Crimes Division, resulted in the October 19 criminal complaint filed by the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office. MPD’s investigation revealed additional allegations, resulting in added charges.
In addition to the criminal investigation of Officer Heaggan-Brown, an internal investigation has been initiated. Officer Heaggan-Brown remains in-custody and has been suspended from the Milwaukee Police Department.
Due to the nature and sensitivity of this investigation, details of the allegations against Officer Heaggan-Brown will be limited to those contained within the criminal complaint. Updates on the status of the internal investigation will be released as they become available.
Sgt. Tim Gauerke will follow up with information on media availability for Chief Flynn later today.
