NYPD officer masturbates in front of 10-year-old girl he was babysitting, asks if 'he can lick her underwear'

NEW YORK: A New York Police Department officer was arrested on Thursday, September 19, after he allegedly masturbated in front of his girlfriend's 10-year-old daughter, whom he was babysitting. It also came to light that he asked her if he could lick her underwear.
Shaun Frazier, an officer with the department's building maintenance unit, was charged only with endangering the welfare of a child following an Internal Affairs Bureau investigation into his conduct, as he was not accused of touching the victim.
However, prosecutors said that additional charges might be filed against him in the future, according to a Brooklyn Eagle report.
The accused was babysitting the 10-year-old as well as her five-year-old brother on September 5, while their mother was working an overnight security shift at a hospital when he allegedly engaged in the criminal behavior.
The female victim, who had gone to sleep, went into the kitchen after waking up in the middle of the night and found Frazier allegedly licking a pair of the child's underwear.
"He asked if he could lick her underwear," said assistant district attorney Gwen Barnes, adding that the victim ran to her room in response. "He later asked her to come into the room where he was on the mom's bed, where he was masturbating."
Frazier also asked the victim if she would like to see him ejaculate. The girl ran to her room for a second time. This time, the officer followed her to her room and took away her cell phone and disconnected the landline so that she could not call her mother for help.
The five-year veteran of the NYPD turned himself in on Thursday and was arraigned at the Brooklyn Supreme Court.
Prosecutors asked for $10,000 bail in the case, arguing that Frazier was a flight risk. The accused's lawyer argued before the court that bail in his client's case was unnecessary as he had to take care of his mother, who has dementia. Frazier was released without bail.
