WAYNE COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - A former Huntington police officer is named in a four-count indictment that alleges sexual assault and abuse of a juvenile.

The alleged incident happened around Feb. 13, according to the indictment from Wayne County Circuit Court. Police say Boyer resigned the same day as the alleged incident.

Officers say Boyer did not say why he was resigning, but they later found out that a criminal investigation was underway for an alleged criminal incident that happened outside their jurisdiction.

Among the charges Boyer faces are sexual assault and abuse involving a juvenile.
