Boston Police report  Officer Henderson Parker was arrested late Sunday night after a woman told police he'd raped her at a Roslindale residence.
Parker, 45, has been suspended with pay and had his service firearm confiscated pending the outcome of the case against him.
Parker has been an officer for 18 years. The Globe reports  Parker was suspended for 30 days in 2002 following "a physical confrontation of a domestic nature that resulted in injuries."
Parker lives in Roslindale himself; authorities declined to say if the alleged rape happened at his home.
Parker was arraigned today in West Roxbury District Court. Prosecutors asked for bail of $2,500 on the charges of indecent assault and battery and rape; a judge set bail at $1,000, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. He is next due in court Feb. 22.
