A Brooklyn cop was arrested on Sunday for allegedly assaulting and strangling his girlfriend while off-duty, police sources said.
According to authorities familiar with the investigation, 30-year-old NYPD Officer Travis Grant was cuffed during the early hours of Nov. 26 after his girlfriend accused him of viciously assaulting her. Grant was taken to the 69th Precinct in Canarsie.
Grant’s girlfriend alleges that the officer attacked her on more than one occasion, punching her in the face and even strangling her in what is now being investigated as a domestic abuse case. Grant is a seven-year veteran of the force and is currently assigned to Park Slope’s 78th Precinct.
While the latest incident reportedly happened outside of work hours, Grant also has several complaints against him while on the job, according to the Civilian Complaint Review Board. In 2018, Grant was accused of using unnecessary physical force on a 64-year-old woman and, during a separate incident that same year, he was reported for pointing a gun at a 45-year-old man.
Grant is charged with strangulation and assault.
