A former Kansas City, Kansas police detective who allegedly sexually assaulted two women has been arrested following a lawsuit filed by Jay-Z’s social justice advocacy group.
On Thursday, the United States Justice Department announced it arrested former Kansas City police officer Roger Golubski over alleged sexual assault, Complex Media reports. This comes a year after Jay-Z’s Team Roc filed a lawsuit against the Kansas City Police Department over alleged misconduct and corruption.
The 69-year-old ex-cop is accused one sexually assaulting two women “while acting under color of law.” The crimes took place between 1998 and 2002 during his 20-year stint with the department, prosecutors say.
“We continue to stand in solidarity alongside the people of Kansas City, Kansas who have been patiently for justice and accountability,” Team Roc managing director Dania Diaz said in a statement. “The arrest of Roger Golubski is a significant step toward creating a safer community and we applaud the Department of Justice for their commitment, diligence and thorough work on this investigation.”
