CRANBERRY TOWNSHIP (KDKA) — A North Braddock police officer has resigned amid allegations that he solicited sex online and sexually assaulted a woman.
Earlier this week, an investigation began into an ad on a classifieds website that featured photos of North Braddock police officer Mike Foley under the title “White Alpha Male Bull Seeking couples/wives/girlfriends.”
The post appears to be an ad in which Foley is soliciting sex with married women or women who are currently in a relationship.
New information came to light Friday when sources say Cranberry Township police began investigating sexual assault allegations made against Foley.

According to sources, a 30-year-old Cranberry woman gave police a detailed report of what is described as a “sexual encounter” with Foley.
The sources say the woman told police Foley met her at a Cranberry hotel in late April. Sources confirm the woman told police Foley was in full uniform at the time, he took her to a room, and she had sex with Foley in the room.
Sources also confirm the woman told investigators she became concerned for her safety with Foley, and she alleged Foley became very aggressive. Sources confirm the woman told police she waited to come forward because she was concerned about the retaliation.
Sources confirm the woman told police she met Foley on the same website where he is accused of allegedly soliciting sex.
After the initial allegations about the ad surfaced, Foley’s attorney said his client did not post the ads, and someone else fabricated them and placed them on the site, using them against Officer Foley.
That attorney now says, however, he is no longer representing Foley.
Foley’s new attorney, Phil DiLucente, told KDKA’s Kym Gable that Foley resigned from the North Braddock Police Department on Friday.
“At a later date and at a later time, this will all be explained,” DiLucente said. “And I can tell you this, Mike Foley will cooperate to the extent possible with regards to this sexual allegation because it’s falsity.”
DiLucente said Foley is resigning to dedicate all of his time and energy to clearing his name, not because he is guilty.
DiLucente also says Foley denies any kind of sexual act or sexual encounter with the Cranberry woman.
