Wayne Couzens is reportedly facing a new probe over a sexualt assault on a drag queen – unrelated to the rape and murder of Sarah Everard.
The cross-dressing performer alleges he was in costume when the depraved cop started molesting him at a bar, before propositioning him to have sex in a dark alley.
The Daily Mirror reports that he claims the convicted murderer brazenly told him he was a police officer, when he told him to stop.
The incident is alleged to have taken place three years ago at a pub.
The drag queen did not go to police until he saw publicity about Couzens’s jail term, fearing that his claims would not be taken seriously.
On Friday, he told the Sunday People: “It left me terrified to go out on my own. I recognised Couzens right away when I saw him on TV.
“I said to my partner ‘That’s him’. I feel so awful at what happened to Sarah.”
The alleged victim had gone to watch a band at the pub when the incident unfolded.
He said: “I was getting served and this man said to me, ‘Are you having a good night?’. I went ‘Yes, thank you’ and I thought no more about it.”

The drag artist said he was leaning against the bar when Couzens began to touch him inappropriately on his backside.
He said: “Then he went round to my groin and I went, ‘Oi, stop that. My partner’s over there.’ He went ‘Do you know who I am?’ and I went, ‘Do you know who I f*****g am?’
“I told him my drag stage name and he said, ‘I’m a policeman.’ I said to him, ‘I don’t give a f**k who you are, you do not touch me.’
“After I calmed down a little bit, he went, ‘Do you want to go round the back where it’s dark and give me a b*****b and we can do things?’ I said to him, ‘I’ve told you, p**s off.’”
The man said he took his drink to the table and told his partner what had happened.
He went on: “I wanted to go to the toilet, so I said to my partner, ‘Will you come with me please, in case he’s still at the bar.’
"We went through the bar to the toilet and he had vanished.
“He was tall and had short crew-cut ginger hair and a short beard when I saw him. He was in blue trousers and a white T-shirt.
“It’s lucky I didn’t go outside. Can you imagine if I went down that alley? My partner has said to me, ‘You could have been stabbed in the alley and left somewhere else.’
“I haven’t told any of my friends about it – I’m embarrassed. Whenever I go out now, I stay close to my partner, I won’t wander. I don’t go to the bar on my own now.”
The alleged victim made a formal statement last Tuesday naming Couzens, who served with Kent Police from 2005 to 2009 and joined the Civil Nuclear Constabulary in 2011, then London’s Metropolitan force in 2018.
A Met spokesman said: “We can confirm the Met has received a crime report from Kent Police in relation to an allegation of sexual assault at a pub in summer 2018. Detectives are assessing the information and enquiries are ongoing.”
The spokesman declined to say how many other complaints against Couzens the force is investigating.
He added: “At this time, we have not identified anything that is of the same level of seriousness as the crimes he has been sentenced for.”
