MEDIA, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania police officer with a history of sexual misconduct allegations has been charged with groping and forcibly kissing a woman while on duty.

Prosecutors announced Thursday that 47-year-old Chester police officer Albert Dion Ross surrendered following an investigation into a claim that he had inappropriate sexual contact with a woman in May.

Authorities say Ross put his hands down a woman’s pants and fondled her breasts while inside an elevator in the Chester Police Department building. They say he also told a woman to show him her breasts after responding to a call at her residence.

Detectives later learned that Ross was dismissed from a job as a corrections officer for sexually harassing a subordinate. He also had a female report him for forcibly kissing her when he was employed by the Chester Housing Authority Police Department.

His court records didn’t list an attorney.
