Police officer indicted for rape at police substation
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- A Providence police officer was accused Wednesday of raping a 19-year-old woman at a deserted police substation, then showing up at a nearby home when the woman called 911 to report the alleged attack, prosecutors said.

A grand jury indicted patrolman Marcus Huffman, 37, on a single count of first-degree sexual assault, said Michael Healey, a spokesman for Attorney General Patrick Lynch.

Huffman allegedly met the woman while on-duty March 18 at Platforms Dance Club near the city's harbor. The woman was turned away by the club's owner because she appeared intoxicated, and the officer offered her a ride home, Healey said.

Instead, Huffman allegedly drove her to a police substation that prosecutors believe was deserted and raped her inside.
