SHREWSBURY — A police officer is facing criminal charges in the borough where he works after being accused of domestic violence incidents two days in a row.

Officer Ryan Cullinane, a 27-year-old Tinton Falls resident, is accused of bursting into a woman's home on Jan. 25 and slapping a man in the face after refusing to leave the residence.

He was arrested a day later after he was accused of harassing a woman at a restaurant and then following her home.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Cullinane had hit the woman on Jan. 26. The criminal complaints obtained by New Jersey 101.5 had the names of the victims redacted and an unclear summary of the charges.

Police did not publicly reveal the woman's relationship to Cullinane.

He was charged with fourth-degree trespassing and misdemeanor counts of harassment and simple assault. He was released from custody and was ordered not to have any phone, mail or personal contact with the woman. Cullinane is scheduled to appear in court on March 30 on the trespassing and assault charges.

Shrewsbury Borough Police Chief Robert Turner said Cullinane was suspended with pay.

Cullinane has been an officer in Shrewsbury since 2012 and earned a salary of $67,470.
