CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A Chicopee police officer has been arrested for two counts of rape, kidnapping, and assault and battery.
Chicopee Police Officer Mike Wilk told 22News that state police detectives from the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office arrested 27-year-old Cory Fournier, at the Chicopee Police Department Monday night.
Judge Robert Gardner said in court Tuesday state police were called to Fort Devens at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
Wilk said he was arrested in connection to an incident that occurred while he was off duty, in Ayer this past weekend.
Fourneir was arraigned Tuesday in Clinton District Court on two counts of rape, one count of assault and battery, and one count of kidnapping. He was held on $5,000 cash bail and required to stay away from the victim.
Fournier and the victim reportedly did not know each other prior to the incident.
Fournier has been a Patrol Officer in Chicopee for the past three and half years. He is married with two kids. Wilk said he voluntarily came to the police department Monday to meet with the State Police Detectives.
Wilk said Chicopee Police Chief William Jebb immediately placed Fournier on administrative leave without pay. The department also confiscated his weapon, badge, identification, and personal firearms.
Fournier is due back in court March 30th.
