Cop Arrested on Assault Charges in Domestic Dispute

An off-duty NYPD recruit was arrested in his Rego Park home Saturday night after an alleged assault on his fiancé that left her bruised and with a broken nose.

Police took 27-year-old Alexandru Baiasu into custody after they responded to a call at the Saunders Street home where the two live.

There, his fiancé told officers that Baiasu had menaced her with his baton, threatened her repeatedly and physically abused her in front of their daughter and her own child.

On Saturday, April 14, the fiancé alleges Baiasu began punching her in the face and body repeatedly while telling her he planned to plunge a knife into her chest.

She showed a police sergeant bruises and swelling and said this all took place in front of their three-week-old child and her 14-year-old daughter.

The violence allegedly stretches back to at least April 5, when Baiasu’s fiancé said that he punched her in the nose, breaking it.

The fight on Saturday allegedly stemmed from accusations of cheating.

Baiasu told the sergeant that they got into a verbal altercation after she accused him of cheating with another recruit. Baiasu then said she was suffering post-pardum depression, he told police.

Baiasu is charged with assault, menacing, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment.
