CHICAGO — A Chicago police officer accused of sexually assaulting a man while in custody is scheduled to be in court on Monday.

According to prosecutors, Carlyle Calhoun was guarding the victim at St. Bernard Hospital in 2018 after the victim had been arrested.

Calhoun is accused of sucking the victim’s toes, grabbing his genitals, and taking snap shots of the victim as he tried to use a portable urinal.  Calhoun then allegedly performed a vile sex act on the male victim by force.

The victim reported the sexual assault to hospital staff once Calhoun had left the room.  Medical staff administered a sexual assault evidence kit on the victim and matched DNA to a saliva swab administered to Calhoun, according to prosecutors.

According to CPD, an investigation revealed that a photo of the victim’s genitals was on Calhoun’s cellphone.

Calhoun’s attorneys declined to comment.
