Veteran Fort Wayne detective files sex harassment suit

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE -

A female detective claims in a lawsuit that male police officers in Fort Wayne invited her to watch pornographic videos, used obscene names and gestures and kept a sex toy for an office "mascot."

Bridget Glaser is suing the police department in federal court, claiming her civil rights were violated. Neither her attorneys nor attorneys representing the city immediately returned phone calls from The Associated Press seeking comment Friday.

Glaser says women in the Fort Wayne department were treated like "second-class citizens."

Court documents allege a police sergeant kept a sex toy on his desk that was rotated around the office and at least once placed on Glaser's chair.

Glaser has been a police officer since 1993 and a detective since 2002.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
