SPOKANE, Wash. —

Authorities say two Spokane-area law enforcement officers have been placed on leave after being accused of misconduct in separate cases.

The Spokesman-Review says ( http://is.gd/nTU13y) a Spokane city police officer has been accused of stalking a woman and making aggressive sexual advances. The Spokane County sheriff's office says a detective is being investigated for assault in nearby Lincoln County.

Spokane police confirmed Friday that Officer Jeff Graves was placed on leave May 9 after being made aware of misconduct allegations against him. Court documents show his accuser is a woman that Graves acknowledged having traded text and Facebook messages with. Police Chief Frank Straub says city police and the sheriff's office are conducting a criminal investigation.

Earlier this week, the sheriff's office placed Detective Dale Toliver on leave after being advised that he was being investigated for assault in a Sunday confrontation near Odessa. The sheriff's office says Toliver suffered "significant injuries" and arranged through his lawyer to surrender Friday to Lincoln County authorities after his release from a hospital.

Neither officer was immediately reachable for comment.
