Masturbating police officer interested in young woman during response: Lawyers

The California police officer, who allegedly masturbated during a domestic riot incident, “was interested” in the 23-year-old sister of a “violent” man against whom the family had a restraining order, prosecutors said.

32-year-old San Jose officer Matthew Dominguez allegedly “touched himself” in front of the woman and her mother at their home on April 21 before exposing himself to the older woman, according to Santa Clara County Attorneys.

The racy scene was detailed in an evidence document released by prosecutors in connection with Dominguez’s Thursday arrest for indecent disclosure.

Dominguez and two other police officers had responded to a home where a “mentally ill family member was violent” toward his parents and sister, who had a restraining order on the suspect, prosecutors said.

The four-year veteran began his investigation by speaking to the sister, who told him where he could possibly find her brother, officials said.

The allegedly perverted cop “then took an interest in her and continued to interact with her almost exclusively” while he sent his partners to search for the brother, according to prosecutors, citing his bodycam footage.

About 40 minutes after the investigation began, the woman gave Dominguez her brother’s GPS device in the presence of her mother, officials said.

The women “then saw Officer Dominguez unzip his pants and put his hand inside
his zipper and started rubbing his crotch,” the document reads.

When the mother asked her daughter for a glass of water, “Dominguez followed the daughter into the kitchen and turned to face her [her mother, who] saw Officer Dominguez’s penis fully exposed outside of his pants,” prosecutors said.

Male relatives of the “shocked and terrified” victims then reported Dominguez to other officers at the scene, according to the report.

Dominguez has been placed on administrative leave and could face a year in prison and 10 years on a sex offender list if convicted, authorities said.

“The alleged behavior is beyond disturbing,” said District Attorney Jeff Rosen. “Law enforcement officers are responding to our homes to help victims of crime, not terrorize, traumatize and create new victims.”
