Award-Winning Maryland Cop Arrested; Accused of Raping Woman during Stop

A Maryland cop was arrested Monday on charges that he raped a woman he had pulled over during a traffic stop.

Prince George’s County police officer Ryan Macklin is accused of pulling the woman over early Thursday morning, then making his way into her car where he forced her into a sex act.

The victim was an undocumented immigrant but police have not said if that played a role in the alleged incident.

According to a press release from the police department:

>
> The preliminary investigation reveals Macklin pulled over the driver early Thursday morning on University Boulevard in Langley Park. During that stop, Macklin is accused of forcing the victim to perform a sexual act while they were both seated in her car in a nearby parking lot. Macklin was on-duty, in uniform, and driving a marked police cruiser at the time. At this point in the investigation, there is no evidence as to why he targeted this victim. Investigators released this brief surveillance video where POFC Macklin can be seen activating his emergency equipment on his cruiser in order to initiate the traffic stop in question.
>
> “The charges against this officer are highly troubling. Officers take an oath to protect others, not to abuse their authority in order to victimize someone. Those who live and work in Prince George’s County deserve the very best from the men and women of this department,” said Chief Hank Stawinski.

The six-year veteran was charged with first degree rape, second degree rape, perverted practice, second degree assault and fourth degree sex offense.

Macklin, who is married, according to his Facebook profile, was named “Officer of the Month” on twooccasions in 2014.

Police believe there may be more victims and recommended they call them at 301-772-4795 to report the crime.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
