Vaughan Mark Hildebrand: Sydney cop who ‘blackmailed women with nudes’ also charged with rape

A SYDNEY police officer accused of stalking and blackmailing women with their naked photographs has now been charged with a further dozen offences, including rape and soliciting child pornography.

Former constable Vaughan Mark Hildebrand, 28, has been in jail since his arrest in June and now faces 33 charges relating to the alleged harassment of 10 women, some of them female colleagues.

Police allege Hildebrand, of Campbelltown, used restricted police data and several social media accounts and phones to haunt his victims and in one case pretended to be a plastic surgeon to obtain a picture of a woman’s breasts.

A majority of the alleged offences occurred while he was stationed at Sydney City Local Area Command but span from 2010 to 2016.

More recently, Hildebrand has been accused of the having sexual intercourse with a young woman without her consent and two counts of using a carriage service to solicit child pornography.

After The Daily Telegraph broke the story of Hildebrand’s charges, a number of other women came forward with their stories.

He was originally arrested at a Menai property, in Sydney’s south, and charged with 17 offences relating to two female officers and third woman.

Vaughan has apparently been “tormented” in jail, according to his lawyer.

He has applied for bail twice but it has been refused.

The 28-year-old is charged with one count of misconduct in public office, 11 counts of using a carriage service to harass and intimidate and six counts of stalking or intimidating with the intention of causing physical fear.

Officers also charged him with a number of firearm offences after finding a Glock and several rounds of ammunition during a search warrant.

Police will allege Hildebrand accessed restricted data on a police computer in January this year, which sparked a covert investigation by officers attached to the NSW Force’s ­Professional Standards Command.

After he was arrested he was suspended without pay but has since resigned from the NSW Police Force.

At the time of his arrest, Acting Assistant Commissioner David Donohue was horrified a fellow officer stood accused of such serious crimes.

“We are entrusted as police officers to uphold the law and while these are allegations, any misuse of trust is a serious ­matter,” Supt Donohue said.

Hildebrand allegedly targeted vulnerable women and in two cases, after obtaining pictures of their breasts, he threatened to publish the images unless they sent him more explicit photos.

In one case he allegedly threatened a woman and said he would contact her partner and publish images he had ­obtained of her.

Hildebrand is expected to next face Central Local Court in December.
