OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer already accused in the sexual assault of 10 women has been charged with assaulting three more.

The Oklahoman reports (http://bit.ly/1tYJkbX ) that Daniel Ken Holtzclaw was charged with six more sexual assault counts Tuesday, after three new victims came forward.

The victims, including a 17-year-old girl, say the 27-year-old Holtzclaw forced them to commit sex acts while he was on duty.

There are now a total of 32 charges against Holtzclaw in allegations brought by 13 women.

Holtzclaw is under house arrest in Enid on $609,000 bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 18.

His attorney, Scott Adams, says Holtzclaw denies the charges, looks forward to his day in court and is ready to get back to work at the police department.
