    The New York City police officer who was arrested on rape and other charges pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Thursday.

    Arthur Roldan, 28, posted $20,000 bail Thursday, according to his attorney. He was ordered to stay away from the alleged victim and to have no contact with her. 

    Roldan is accused in a July 31 incident on Staten Island, where he lives, police said. Roldan and the victim knew each other, and the officer was off duty at the time. 

    Roldan, a six-year veteran, is assigned to a Brooklyn precinct. He has been suspended from his job without pay.
