A Melbourne police officer has been forced to resign after an investigation showed he was approaching women in parking lots while on duty and asking for their phone numbers.
A memo from a police department lieutenant says Officer Rey Munoz approached several women in the parking lot of LA Fitness on Feb. 19. Police reviewed Munoz’s onboard video and saw him speaking with three different women. One of the women described it later to police as a “creepy” encounter.
A written statement by one of the women said Munoz asked her age.
