A Brooklyn detective who accused his boss of stuffing her panties into his mouth has been transferred to a different command, in a move his lawyer calls punishment for speaking out.
Detective Victor Falcon was transferred on May 11 from the 72nd Precinct Detective Squad to a Patrol Borough Brooklyn South Narcotics Unit operating out of the 69th Precinct in Canarsie, police sources said.
A source familiar with the case called it “punitive retaliation” because the narcotics posting is more dangerous and considered a step down from a detective squad.
Falcon was out sick when he got a phone call letting him know he’d been transferred, the source said.
“While I consider involuntary transfers to be a retaliatory act, I nevertheless am hopeful that my client will not be retaliated against at the new detail,” his lawyer, Paul Liggieri said.
In October, Falcon filed a complaint against Sgt. Ann Marie Guerra, claiming she rubbed her underwear in his face, after he complained about her leaving her undies in the unisex locker room and on the shower door of the 72nd Precinct detective squad office.
