SPD Officer under investigation for sexual assault

SPOKANE, Wash. - Multiple sources now confirm that the Spokane Police officer under investigation amid allegations of sexual assault is Officer Nathan Nash. 

4 News Now broke the story of the investigation last week.

It came to light when a woman who was the victim of another crime says Nash came to her home to do a follow-up investigation and, while there, sexually assaulted her.

The investigation was brought to Spokane Police internal affairs. Because the conduct was potentially criminal and sexual in nature, SPD immediately turned the investigation over to the Spokane County Sheriff's Office. Detectives with that agency have been assigned and are investigating, but right now, Nash has not been charged with a crime.

Nash has been placed on paid administrative leave. The status of that leave could change based on whether or not criminal charges are filed and what those charges are.

Since 4 News Now started looking into the accusations, Nash has deleted his picture from his LinkedIn page and removed any mention of working for the Spokane Police Department.
