Ex-Cop Accused of Throwing Semen on Co-Worker Faces Judge


A disgraced police sergeant, accused of throwing semen on a female co-worker in January, faced a Manhattan judge on Thursday in a pretrial hearing where his defense lawyer argued that DNA evidence be suppressed.

Defendant Michael Iscenko stood calm and silent as his new attorney, Michael Worn, echoed the reasoning for suppression of a motion filed by another lawyer.

ADA Emily C. Ching opposed the motion, saying, “There is nothing to be suppressed.”

The judge reserved decision.

Iscenko was arrested in September and faces misdemeanor sexual abuse charges. He has pleaded not guilty.

The incident allegedly happened at 1 Police Plaza where he is accused of flinging the semen on the victim’s legs and shoes after she exited the bathroom. The unnamed co-worker, with whom Iscenko allegedly was infatuated, noticed the bodily fluids immediately on her legs and reported the incident.

Later, a positive DNA test led to the defendant being fired from the department.

Iscenko, who is out on bail exited the courtroom without a word and was mobbed by photogs.

The trial was adjourned to January 21.
