An investigation into groping allegations involving Officer Matthew Dominguez, at a party hosted by another officer, ended with no charges being filed

A San Jose police officer being prosecuted on allegations he masturbated in front of a family while responding to a call last month was the subject of a sexual-assault investigation last year after he was accused of drunkenly groping a woman at a party at the home of another police officer, according to authorities and the woman.

Officer Matthew Dominguez, 32, was arrested last week after being accused of exposing himself to a family, including a mother and daughter, while responding to a domestic disturbance call in April. He is out of custody and is scheduled to be arraigned June 22 for a count of misdemeanor indecent exposure.

Dominguez, who has been a San Jose police officer for four years, could face a year in jail and be required to register as a sex offender if he is convicted of the charge. He is currently on paid administrative leave from the police department after being physically walked off the job by Chief Anthony Mata. Dominguez does not have a listed attorney and attempts to reach him Thursday were not successful.

After Dominguez’s arrest, a Bay Area woman came forward publicly about her claim that Dominguez sexually harassed and assaulted her at a Memorial Day party in the backyard of the Campbell home of another San Jose police officer. Her allegation was investigated, but no charges were ever filed in the case.
