A woman who accused a Toronto police officer of raping her told his sexual assault trial Monday that she was afraid of being hurt if she didn't comply with his demands.
The woman, who cannot be identified, told Const. Vincenzo Bonazza's trial the alleged incident took place nearly a decade ago during what was supposed to be a casual encounter at her apartment.
"He didn't take my words, didn't take my body language," she said. "I was afraid he was going to hurt me."
Bonazza has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault at the judge-alone trial.
Court heard that the woman only reported the incident in 2015, after becoming a police officer herself.
