LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles police officer was arrested Thursday on suspicion of raping a child under the age of 14, according to the LAPD.
Diego Jose Miranda Lopez, who worked at the North Hollywood station and was on the force for less than a year, was booked for forcible rape of a child under 14.
LAPD said the alleged rape happened before he joined the department. The agency said he resigned when he was confronted about the allegations.
