SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - A Salt River Police Department officer is accused of sexually abusing a woman in his custody.
Scottsdale police say 45-year-old Jay Hun Wu was arrested late Thursday on suspicion of kidnapping, sexual abuse and other crimes following an investigation into a March 29 incident.
Scottsdale police say a woman reported that Wu sexually abused her near her home when Wu gave her a courtesy ride home when she was the subject of an investigation.
It could not be immediately determined whether Wu has an attorney who could comment on the allegations, and a Scottsdale police spokesman said Wu remained in custody Friday.
