A Connecticut State Police trooper has been suspended while authorities investigate claims of sexual assault.

State police said they were called to a home on Old Field Road in Southbury early Wednesday morning for a medical call. A person at the residence made allegations against Trooper Jose Campos.

An investigation into the allegations against Campos is underway. He's since been suspended pending the outcome of the investigation.

Campos' police powers have been revoked. The Central District Major Crime Squad is investigating. Specific details about what happened were not immediately available.

The state police union said they can't comment on active criminal or administrative investigations.

"We ask that the public reserve judgement until all facts are known," the union said.
