MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A former Madison police officer has been arrested and accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a child.

Police say the 56-year-old man was arrested Wednesday in Florida where he has been living since 2017.

Police say the former officer has been under investigation since July when the victim came forward and told police that at age 15 she was enticed into a sexual relationship that began in 2009 while he was with the Madison Police Department.

The victim said she was assaulted for several years and on some occasions was threatened and confined with handcuffs.
