Prosecutors seek $100,000 bond for Cleveland cop they say is a ‘serial abuser of women’

Prosecutors described a Cleveland cop as a “serial abuser of women” and asked a judge to raise his bond to $100,000.

David Anderson was indicted last month on charges of menacing by stalking, aggravated menacing and domestic violence, reported the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The 51-year-old police officer had three previous domestic violence incidents, authorities said.

He remains free on $10,000 bond posted the day after his Dec. 16 arrest by the president of the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association, but he was suspended pending the outcome of the case.

His attorney said Anderson, a city police officer since 2007, was a “good public servant and outstanding police officer.”

The attorney said Anderson would not plead guilty to the charges.

Prosecutors moved to have Anderson’s bond increased because they said he has already violated a protection order by calling the victim, his 43-year-old girlfriend, after his arrest.

Anderson is accused of attacking the woman three times in three consecutive days, starting Dec. 13.

He is accused of knocking his girlfriend unconscious by shoving her to the pavement and then shoving her down some stairs the following day.

Anderson pleaded guilty in 2010 to disorderly conduct after he was accused of threatening a previous girlfriend, punching through drywall at her home, breaking dishes, and slashing her tires.

That woman’s daughter called police in 2009 and reported Anderson was threatening to punch her mother, but the girlfriend did not press charges.

He was arrested in 2005 after threatening to snap that girlfriend’s neck, and authorities said he called her from jail and again threatened to snap her neck if she didn’t “fix this.”

Prosecutors did not charge Anderson in that case.

A judge will rule Thursday on the prosecutors’ request to raise Anderson’s bond.

"Congressman, you are always welcome, wherever I am, at nine or eleven, whenever," Cuomo said.

"Thanks Sean," Gaetz replied.

"Did you just call me Sean?" Cuomo asked. "Did you just call me Sean?"
