CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - A woman has sued former Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes and several officers saying they knew about a detective’s inappropriate behavior and took no action.

The amended lawsuit filed Tuesday contends the former detective sexually assaulted a rape victim.

Rhodes retired last month. A termination letter obtained by the Sun News of Myrtle Beach (https://bit.ly/1UhgvRh) shows Rhodes fired the detective last July. Rhodes has said she cannot talk about the matter because she’ll be called to testify in the lawsuit.

The Horry County Police Department and the former detective are also being sued by the woman and another woman.

Horry County spokeswoman Lisa Bourcier says it is county policy not to talk about pending litigation.

The State Law Enforcement Division has been investigating the department since November.
