A Border Patrol agent who worked out of the Tucson Station is accused of sexually assaulting at least three women he met online over the past seven years that he has worked with the federal agency.
Steven Charles Holmes, 33, was arrested Tuesday and jailed and has been placed on administrative duties pending the outcome of the case, Tucson.com reports .
“We do not tolerate misconduct on, or off duty, and will fully cooperate with all investigations of alleged misconduct by our personnel,” Customs and Border Protection wrote in a statement.
The investigation began after a woman told Tucson Police that she was sexually assaulted by Holmes after meeting him on a dating app. Police said a further investigation turned up multiple victims with similar reports from 2012 to 2019.
Police emphasized the investigation is ongoing and encourage women to come forward if they were sexually assaulted by Holmes.
