Former Police Officer Sexually Assaulted a Woman While on Duty: Officials

A Bolingbrook man and former Maywood police officer was arrested Friday after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in a Villa Park hotel.

A Bolingbrook man and former Maywood police officer was arrested Friday after authorities said he sexually assaulted a woman while on duty. 

Deon Sams, 38, of 212 Orchard, is being held on $200,000 bond and is facing two counts of criminal sexual assault and one count of official misconduct, both felonies. 

Officials said that while on patrol on March 24, Sams encountered his female victim walking along the street in Maywood. He allegedly asked the woman if she needed assistance. He then returned to the police station with the woman, returned his police car and left with the woman in his personal car. 

Sams then took her to a Villa Park hotel, rented a room and escorted her to the room. Once inside the room, he allegedly sexual assaulted the woman.  

“My office takes any allegation of a sexual assault very seriously,” said DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin said in a release. 

“What makes this case particularly disturbing is the alleged offender is a police officer. I would like to stress that the allegations against Mr. Sams are not a reflection of the fine men and women of the Maywood Police Department. I would like to thank the Maywood Police Department for their complete cooperation in this matter as well as Assistant State’s Attorney Romas Mockaitis for his efforts.”

Nicole you couldnt have said it any better!!!Now thats real talk. You see it easy for a person to judge from the outside and not know whats really going on! We will always have people that have nothing but hate because so much has been done to them rather the past or now. You are absolutely right this recent tragedy in Connecticut should teach us better I agree! Bless you Nicole
