Vaughan Hildebrand: Ex-cop accused of raping, harassing and stalking vulnerable women

FOURTEEN rape charges have been added to a long list of accusations including sexual harassment, stalking and soliciting child pornography against a former Sydney police officer.

A dozen women have now accused ex-constable Vaughan Hildebrand of more than 50 sickening offences.

The 29-year-old from Campbelltown remains behind bars after being twice refused bail.

Many of the allegations came to light after The Daily Telegraph reported Hildebrand had first been charged with 17 offences, mostly of harassing and stalking three women.

Another seven women came forward with accusations against Hildebrand and he was charged with another 16 offences including sexual­ assault and using a carriage service­ to solicit child pornography.

More recently another two women came forward, one who accused Hildebrand­ of raping her repeatedly in 2010.

He faces 14 charges of sexual intercourse­ without consent relating to that woman, among a further 18 charges laid against him.

In total he faces 51 charges for offences­ which allegedly occurred between­ 2010 and 2016.

Among those are a total of 15 charges­ of sexual­ intercourse without consent, 12 counts of using a carriage service to harass and intimidate, six counts of stalking or intimidating with the intention of causing physical fear, one count of misconduct in public office­, and three counts of using a carriage­ service to solicit child pornography­.

Police allege Hildebrand 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.

Many of the offences are alleged to have occurred when Hildebrand was a constable at Sydney City local area command, including blackmailing and harassing female colleagues with their naked photographs.

Hildebrand — who can be seen whipping attack dogs on a YouTube video he posted — was arrested last June.

He is in protective custody­ and has been “tormented” in jail, according to his lawyer.

Police will allege that Hildebrand accessed restricted data on a police computer last January, which sparked an internal investigation by the force’s Professional Standards Command.

After his arrest, he was suspended without pay but resigned from NSW Police Force in October.

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.

Police have not ruled out the possibility of laying further charges.

Hildebrand will next face Central Local Court on February 15.
