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 related to a March 29 incident.

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.

Police say Wu remained in custody Friday. He faces a June 16 preliminary hearing.

An attorney who appeared at Wu’s initial court appearance Friday on his behalf didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment on the case.

A Salt River Police Department spokesman says Wu is on administrative leave, but wouldn’t specify when the leave began or comment further.
