A police spokesperson said the officer is currently suspended from duty.
“Police are not able to comment further while this matter remains before the Auckland District Court,” the spokesperson said.
The police officer entered a not-guilty plea in Auckland District Court on Tuesday.
The officer has been granted interim name suppression and will next appear in court on February 28.
