NEW YORK - The New York Police Department anticipates charging IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment within the hour, a police spokesman said on Saturday.




"We anticipate he is going to be formally arrested and charged in an hour," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said at 11:15 p.m.




"He will be charged with a criminal sexual act, attempted rape and unlawful imprisonment."




Strauss-Kahn was taken into custody at JFK airport earlier on Saturday over an alleged sexual assault of a hotel maid in New York City.
