SAN DIEGO, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- The city of San Diego has agreed to pay $675,000 to a woman who was sexually assaulted by a police officer convicted of multiple attacks while on duty.

The settlement, which has been agreed upon by the city attorney and the plaintiff attorney, must be approved by the City Council, the Los Angeles Times reported. Two other women have filed similar claims.

Officer Anthony Arevalos, 41, an 18-year veteran, was sentenced in February to eight years, eight months in prison for multiple counts of bribery and assault, including threatening women with arrest unless they allowed him to see and touch their breasts or slip his hand down their pants.

Arevalos was fired when the charges were filed against him.
