VANCOUVER, Wash. – Vancouver police on Wednesday arrested a Beaverton police officer who they said raped a five-year-old child.
Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said detectives with the Children’s Justice Center called the Southwest Washington Regional SWAT team to arrest Christopher R. Warren, 33, in Vancouver.
Police took Warren to the Clark County Jail. He faces one count of rape in the first degree.
Police said Warren and the victim know each other. It's unclear when the alleged crime occurred.
Warren is currently on paid administrative leave from the Beaverton Police Department while he is being investigated for food stamp fraud, according to Beaverton police spokesman Mike Rowe.
Warren was fired from the department in 2011 amid allegations that he failed to report an incident where he inappropriately touched a minor girl when he was 17. Warren was reinstated later that year and has been on a desk job ever since, Rowe said. No charges were filed in that case.
