A Metropolitan Police officer who guarded the prime minister has been charged with further sex attacks on a thirteenth alleged victim.
David Carrick, 47, who now faces a total of 53 charges, is due to appear in court in London next week.
Carrick was originally charged in October 2021 with the rape of a woman he was said to have messaged on dating app Tinder before meeting her in person at a pub in St Albans, Herts.
He was charged with a further 13 offences last November after three more alleged victims came forward.
In March nine further offences, including six counts of rape relating to four women were alleged to have taken place between 2009 and 2018.
Carrick, of Stevenage, Herts, was immediately suspended by the force after he was initially arrested by Hertfordshire Constabulary officers in October last year.
The new charges, all relating to a 13th alleged victim, are six counts of rape, one count of false imprisonment, one of indecent assault and possession of a firearm with intent to cause fear of violence.
Alleged incident occured in 2003
A Met Police spokesman said: "The charges relate to incidents alleged to have occurred in 2003 that were reported to police in July 2022.
"The allegation in relation to possession of a firearm predates Carrick’s service in an armed policing role.
"He will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday November 30. He continues to be remanded in custody."
They added: "We recognise that these are extremely serious and concerning allegations.
"Referrals have been made to the Independent Office for Police Conduct as the investigation has progressed.
"The Met’s Directorate of Professional Standards continues to monitor developments closely and will provide whatever support it can to Hertfordshire officers.
"National regulations dictate that any misconduct proceedings must await the outcome of the criminal case."
Carrick was based within the Met’s Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection Command, the armed unit stationed in Westminster, and is responsible for the protection of sensitive sites such as Downing Street.
