Jackie Len Neal, San Antonio Cop, Accused of Raping Handcuffed Woman
Neal, 40, began tailing the 19-year-old woman around 2 a.m, according to an arrest warrant. He persisted until she pulled over, then allegedly handcuffed her and assaulted her inside the patrol car. Documents say Neal told the woman that he was following her because her car was reported stolen, but officers have not confirmed the claim.
“I am at a loss for words. I am outraged. This is a punch in the eye to the police department,” San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told the Express News. McManus said a different woman made a similar complaint about Neal years ago, but charges were never pursued because the woman refused to cooperate in an investigation.
The surveillance cameras in the patrol car were not working at the time the assault was reported, according to KXLY. However, GPS shows that the patrol car was parked in one place — the spot where the victim says she was raped — for about 18 minutes.
