A Metropolitan Police officer who has already been charged with 44 offences, has been charged with a further nine, including six counts of rape.

PC David Carrick, an armed officer who served in the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command and worked on the parliamentary estate, now faces 53 charges, including 27 counts of rape.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said the new charges, which cover six counts of rape, one count of false imprisonment, one count of indecent assault and one count of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence, relate to a new complainant and is alleged to have taken place in July 2003.

The CPS said on Thursday it had authorized Hertfordshire police officers to charge Carrick with the nine further offences. This is in addition to the 44 offenses he was previously charged with against 12 separate women.

The defendant is now charged with 53 offenses against 13 women between 2003 and 2020, including 27 counts of rape, nine counts of sexual assault, five counts of penetrative violence, three counts of coercive and controlling behavior, three counts of false imprisonment, one count of attempted rape, one count of attempted sexual assault by intrusion, one count of causing a person to engage in sexual activity without consent, one count of indecent assault and one count of possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear violence.

Carrick, 47, will appear in court for the first time in connection with the new charges on November 30 at 2pm at Westminster Magistrates Court. He is due to stand trial on the previous 44 charges on 6 February 2023 at Southwark Crown Court.
