New York, Dec 10 (ANI): An US school official was accused of sexually assaulting a woman by tying her up, shoving a hammer and nail in her vagina and taking pictures, the police have said.
Laurence Harvey, a 165,093 dollars-a-year administrator with the Board of Education, was charged in Manhattan with aggravated sexual abuse after his victim revealed the incident during a counselling session, reports the New York Post.
The police said that the 46-year-old official was arrested in Brooklyn five days ago for allegedly assaulting the woman who then sought counselling.
It was during a counselling session that she revealed the horrifying sexual abuse, which took place in May, they added.
Police said Harvey, who lives in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, forced the woman to get naked before attacking her with the tools and taking pictures.
Harvey had been supervising support staff in more than 24 schools before he was suspended without pay because of the allegations.
He has worked for the Department of Education in a series of managerial positions since 2003.
Harvey is awaiting arraignment in a Manhattan court. (ANI)
