A NYPD sergeant has filed a complaint that claims he’s being sexually harassed by his male boss.
Sgt. Nelson Fernandez, a nine-year NYPD veteran, said he’s “fed up” with the unwanted advances from Transit District No. 4 commander Deputy Inspector Thomas Connolly.
Fernandez, who has filed a formal complaint with the NYPD’S Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, said the most bizarre come-on took place in Connolly’s Union Square office.
“He’ll call me in for no particular reason” Fernandez told the Daily News. “Then he’ll lounge back with his feet up and he puts a pen in his mouth and starts sucking on it in a sexual manner.”
“I commend Sgt. Fernandez for shining light on an often-hidden problem of male-on-male sexual harassment,” Sanders said.
