Alice Valdez, a police officer with Nevada's Capitol Police force, filed a lawsuit against five of her male colleagues on Wednesday, September 4, claiming that she is the victim of sexual harassment and age discrimination.
"The male officers, according to the complaint filed in district court, suggested [Valdez] could not do her job because she was a woman," states local news outlet the Las Vegas Sun. "She said one officer, Chris Aranyos, made comments last December about having sex with her […] In another instance, the suit said Aranyos rubbed up against her in a 'sexual manner' referring to 'her body in a lascivious manner.'"
Additionally, Valdez claims that the defendants have implied that she is too old to adequately perform her duties. The source reports that she is over the age of 40, though it does not mention her exact age.
