Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A fourth woman has filed a lawsuit against a former LMPD officer, accusing him of rape. 

In the lawsuit electronically filed Sunday, the unidentified woman said former officer Pablo Cano sexually assaulted her while he was still working for LMPD.

According to the woman's attorney, Shannon Fauver, Cano reportedly pulled her over in February or March of 2017 for allegedly running a stop sign by the Americana Apartments near Southside Drive and told her she could either go to jail or have sex with him.

Fauver said it happened in Cano's police cruiser while he was in uniform.  

The lawsuit also names LMPD and Metro Government as defendants. 

Seven women in total have come forward accusing Cano of rape since the first lawsuit was filed in July, four have filed lawsuits. 

Cano resigned in September of last year after several women came forward with rape accusations.
