Clayton, MO (KSDK) - A misdemeanor domestic assault charge levied against a Ladue police officer earlier this summer has been dismissed after prosecutors say the victim in the case would not cooperate.

35 year old Steven Manasco of Affton was cited last August by St. Louis County Police after he allegedly assaulted his girlfriend. Reports indicated Manasco pushed, then punched the victim at a home in the 9100 block of Lucia Drive, also in Affton.

NewsChannel 5 learned Wednesday that the case against Manasco was closed after the woman would not assist in the prosecution of the crime.

Manasco resigned his position as police officer with the City of Ladue in early October.
