Cop Accused of Sexual Assault of Minor

State police have issued an arrest warrant for William Edwards Sr., a well-known New London police officer, in connection with sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

The New London Day reports that Edwards, 45, is hospitalized and under psychiatric care, preventing state police from serving the warrant. State police are investigating Edwards for what they said is an off-duty incident.

Edwards, a 20-year old veteran of the department, is on paid leave. The chief of the New London Police Department is not commenting on the allegations since the investigating is ongoing.
