SAN ANTONIO, TX – Officer Jackie Len Neal, 40, was arrested on a charge of felony sexual assault on Saturday. He is accused of raping a 19-year-old woman during a traffic stop at 2 a.m. the day before, according to San Antonio Express News. [contextly_sidebar id=”c28526a99eee6be07617e012ed082b25″]

Police Chief William McManus said a different woman made a similar complaint against Neal a few years ago. That woman ultimately did not pursue a police investigation, and Neal was not charged with any crime. Neal was also suspended in September for three days for dating an 18-year-old member of the Police Explorer program about two years ago.

After that incident, police stated he was transferred to a night shift on the South patrol. On Friday morning, according to an arrest warrant affidavit, Neal allegedly tailed a woman until she pulled over.

Neal told the woman he was following her because the car she was driving was reported stolen, the woman told police. After showed him the sales receipt to prove the car was hers, Neal asked the woman to get out of the vehicle so he could pat her down, according to the affidavit. The woman said she felt uncomfortable and asked that a female officer pat her down, but her request was ignored.

During the pat-down, the affidavit said, Neal groped the woman, placed her in handcuffs and moved her to the back of his patrol car.

The document said he then raped her and instructed her not to tell anyone.

According to police, a GPS tracking system in Neal’s patrol car shows his car was stationary for about 18 minutes on Friday.

At the time of the assault, Nea’s patrol car did not have a functioning hard drive, which is needed for the front and rear patrol car cameras to work.

The officer was arrested at 2 a.m. on Saturday.
