SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California police officer has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault, authorities announced Tuesday.

The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office filed one count of forcible rape against 38-year-old San Jose Police Officer Geoff Graves for an incident that occurred on Sept. 22, 2013.

Graves, who is a six-year veteran of the police force, surrendered to authorities on Monday, and he was booked into the county jail and placed on administrative leave.

KTVU-TV reports that he posed $100,000 bail and was released Tuesday.

Authorities said Graves raped a woman who had reported a domestic violence incident and whom he had transported to a hotel for the night.

Physical evidence supports the victim's allegations, investigators said.

Graves' arraignment is scheduled for March 24.
