A fired rookie cop has been arrested in a sexual assault in Waterbury, Washington

Police in Washington arrested 32-year-old Nayimke Amechea, who police discovered in connection with the assault while investigating an October 2022 incident in Pierce County, Waterbury Police Lt. Ryan Bessette said Tuesday afternoon.

Bissett said Waterbury police maintain an active arrest warrant for Amicia, charging him with first-degree sexual assault and home invasion. The arrest warrant sets bail at $2 million, he said, adding that police will work with counterparts across the country to coordinate his extradition to Connecticut.

In Washington, Puyallup Police Chief Scott Engel said in early March that Amicia had been charged with third-degree rape. After the arrest, Amiccia was fired from his job as an officer cadet with the Puyallup Police Department, he said.

Engle noted that Amicia was hired in August 2022 and did not work alone as a police officer.

During the investigation, the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab found that DNA obtained from the sexual assault kit was a match to the Waterbury case.

A Pierce County Sheriff’s Department detective contacted the Waterbury Police Department about the incident and learned that in 2016 a woman reported that an unknown man knocked on her door and entered her home, claiming to be police, according to Amicia’s arrest warrant. Affidavit.

“The man tied the victim’s hands behind her back and forced her to have sex,” the affidavit said.

As the suspect was leaving in a white pickup truck, the woman saw him drop something on the ground. The woman told police the suspect was wearing a condom with a rainbow-colored wrapper during the incident, which police later confiscated and tested for DNA, according to the affidavit.
