Report: Officer accused of raping teen tried to find victim

A San Antonio police officer accused of raping a handcuffed 19-year-old in his patrol car was reportedly arrested after he allegedly tried to find the teen following the alleged assault, reports CBS affiliate KENS.

Officer Jackie Len Neal, 40, an 11-year San Antonio Police Department veteran, was arrested Nov. 22 after he allegedly assaulted the woman during a traffic stop while he was in full uniform and on duty, reports the station.

In a four-page incident report released by the police department Tuesday, police say the teen victim called police Friday to report she had been assaulted by another woman, reports the station. When officers arrived to the home where she initially said the assault took place, the teen reportedly admitted lying to police dispatchers and reported the assault by an officer wearing a badge that read R. Neal.

As police were transporting the woman to a police-impound lot to pick up her vehicle, police received a disturbance call reporting "an unknown individual identifying himself as 'Jack'" was looking for the teen victim.

"They found Officer Neal in the area, driving erratically," San Antonio police chief, William McManus, told KENS. Neal was taken into custody and later charged with sexual assault and official oppression.

Neal has been placed on paid administrative leave, pending an indictment, reports the station.
