A Patchogue Village Code Enforcement officer was arrested Wednesday for alleged sexual misconduct with two women on two separate occasions since last month while he was on duty, Suffolk County police said.

Dennis Fajardo, 28, of Brentwood, was charged with sexual misconduct and forcible touching. Under New York State law, sexual misconduct is defined as engaging in sexual contact with a person without their consent. 

Major Case Unit detectives alleged that in both cases, the suspect picked the women up on Main Street in Patchogue early in the morning, drove them around, parked his vehicle and engaged in unlawful sexual contact with the victims.

A 35-year-old woman reported that the first incident occurred at 4:30 a.m. April 16. A 24-year-old woman reported the second incident at 4 a.m. May 13.

Fajardo is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
