NEW ORLEANS - A New Orleans police officer has been arrested and booked with the alleged forcible rape of a 15 year-old girl.

Police spokeswoman Remi Braden says 42-year-old Desmond Pratt was also booked on charges of sexual battery.

Braden says Pratt was placed on emergency suspension without pay following his arrest early Thursday morning.

Pratt has been with the department since 1997 and was at one point a member of the Community Public Housing Force.

It was unclear whether Pratt has an attorney.
