ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – The fired Englewood police officer who faces charges of sexual assault and domestic violence forced herself on a woman whom she previously had a relationship with, the alleged victim told investigators, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by Denver7 on Thursday.

Anna McCain, 23, was arrested by the Douglas County Sheriff's Office last month. She has since been fired from the department, where she was a patrol officer for less than a year.

McCain faces charges of sexual assault, unwanted sexual contact and causing injury as an act of domestic violence.

McCain and the victim had a brief relationship in February, the affidavit said. But the woman told McCain that she only wanted to be friends.

The two kept in contact, and one night McCain called her while "highly intoxicated," the affidavit said. The conversation made the woman concerned about McCain's mental state, and the police department took McCain off her regular shift for making suicidal statements.

About a week later, McCain invited herself to go out with the woman and some other friends, the affidavit said.

After the other friends left the woman's home, McCain, who had been drinking, made about 10 attempts to have sex with her, the affidavit said, lunging at the woman, groping her and trying to kiss her as the woman told her to stop.

The woman told investigators that she felt nauseous after the alleged assault and "felt like she had been violated," the affidavit said. The woman said her scalp was sore and that she had small bruises on her neck and fingerprint bruises on her breasts and inner thighs.

The next day, McCain messaged the woman on Facebook, asking her to not to report the incident, according to the affidavit.

"So if you are going to do it, please don't," the message read. "I will just stay away. Far far away. I promise."

The woman told McCain that she wouldn't report her but said, "you did f--- up."

"I know," McCain responded, according to the affidavit. "I know. I'm so sorry. I will never forgive myself."
