A New York Police Department police officer was arrested and charged after planning a gruesome crime, according to reports.

Federal officials said that a New York City police officer conspired to kidnap, rape and torture women, then cook and eat parts of their bodies.

Gilberto Valle was arrested on Wednesday, for this gruesome plan.

According to a criminal complaint, the FBI intercepted emails from Valle to an unidentified co-conspirator "discussing plans of kidnapping, raping, torturing, killing, cooking and eating the body parts of a number of women."

No woman was actually harmed.

The police officer of the New York City Police Department lives in Queens. He had been assigned to a Manhattan precinct before being suspended on Wednesday.
