EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - An East St. Louis assistant police chief accused of sexually harassing a female youth program worker has resigned following an independent investigation requested by the city.

Mayor Alvin Parks said Monday that Ronald Ike resigned. Parks didn’t specify the results of the investigation but said they were shared with the city and Ike.

The unidentified young woman made a four-page written complaint involving Ike during the beginning of her summer program, City Manager Deletra Hudson said when she announced the investigation earlier this month.

Ike was suspended for five days without pay during the investigation and was then on paid suspension pending its results. He had been with the police department for about 19 years.
