STAMFORD - A Stamford police officer has been relieved of duty with pay while he is investigated for allegedly making sexual advances toward a Norwalk woman.

Officer Paul Mabey, 42, is accused of allegedly making sexual advances toward a 26-year-old woman during a routine traffic stop.

In a letter to police, the woman says when she was stopped, she noticed her dress had ridden up her thighs. She says she apologized and pulled it back down when the officer responded, "No. I like what I see... looks like you taste good."

She claims the officer later asked if he was her type and she responded that he was too old. She goes on to say later in the stop, the officer asked, "want to see what 40-year-old experience will do for you?" and showed her a picture of his genitals on his cell phone.

Mabey, who was named the 2006 officer of the year, turned in his gun, shield and identification today and is not allowed back in police headquarters.
