Fort Worth Cop Accused Of Sexual Assaults, Jailed
FORT WORTH (AP) – A former Fort Worth police officer suspected of sexual assault is back in jail and accused of sexually assaulting four more women while on duty.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports 33-year-old Daniel Lopez was in the Mansfield Jail on four warrants accusing him of sexual assault. Three of those are aggravated.
His bail is $100,000.
Authorities say a woman reported that Lopez sexually assaulted her Thanksgiving night.
Betty Arvin, of the Tarrant County district attorney’s criminal division, says while investigating that case, police discovered three others.
All the alleged offenses involve women Lopez detained while on duty.
Lopez had worked for the police department since 2004. He resigned Dec. 7, the day before his first arrest.
He was free on bail when arrested Tuesday on the four new warrants.
