A female Missoula police officer was the victim of a misdemeanor sexual assault while on duty over the Labor Day weekend. 

Public Information Officer Travis Welsh said the incident occurred in a crowded downtown bar.

“Early Saturday morning at about 1:30 a.m. the female officer and her patrol partner were walking through a crowded bar downtown when one of the patrons, a 23 year-old male, reached out and touched her inappropriately as she walked past,” Welsh said. “He was escorted outside and placed under arrest and transported to the Missoula County Jail on a charge of misdemeanor sexual assault.”

Welsh said the officer was not injured during the incident.
