A New York City Police officer claimed that a crude sergeant insisted that she have a threesome with him and his wife — then wrongly accused her of faking her timesheets when she refused the proposition.

NYPD Officer Maribel Sarante alleged that her inappropriate superior, Sergeant Freddy Lopez, started acting out at their Seventh Precinct station on the Lower East Side in early 2015, according to her claim, which was a precursor to a $15 million lawsuit.

“When he became my sergeant, he started making comments and asked me if I would have a threesome with his wife,” the 42-year-old told The New York Post.

“He knew I was married, had kids, and I wouldn’t answer him,” she added.

NYC cop Maribel Sarante, 42, accused Sergeant Freddy Lopez, 47, of demanding she have a threesome with him and his wife and reacted by accusing her of falsifying time sheets when she refused

Lopez, 47, acted crassly toward other female subordinates, too, telling one officer to “stop playing with her p—y and report to the desk,” the suit indicated.

The New York City Police sergeant also once made a vulgar sexual joke during roll call, according to Sarante, who is a 15-year veteran of the department.

“Lopez placed a plastic glove over his hand and said, ‘I’m here to do a cavity search, who wants one?’ He picked up two apples and one banana to form the shape of a penis, while laughing,” her claim stated.

When Sarante rejected Lopez, he attempted to get her suspended and reported her to the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau and declaring she was “stealing time” with her partner.

Sarante indicated that she switched to the graveyard shift last summer so she would not have to work with Lopez.

Sarante said she chose to file notice of a claim, beginning the process of what will be a $15 million lawsuit against her boss at the Seventh Precinct station

She filed two complaints against the man but revealed that the NYPD concluded that the incidents were not grave enough to constitute employment discrimination.

“Sexual harassment is a problem within the Police Department, and they don’t take it seriously, and that’s why it keeps on happening,” Sarante’s attorney, Eric Sanders, said.

The officer said she was hesitant to come forward about the treatment.

“When you work for the Police Department, you’re afraid to say anything. I got sick over all this. I lost 25 pounds,” she added.

But she ultimately chose to sue to stop Lopez from targeting other females.

“I am hoping no other female should have to go through what I went through in the Police Department,” she continued.
