After they finished the sexual encounter, the police officer released her, Forbes said.
Forbes said it is his understanding that there is physical evidence to back up her story.
Dunbar Mayor Jack Yeager said Wednesday that Sgt. R.O. Conley is on administrative leave with pay, but would not confirm that Conley is under investigation. He is on administrative leave for an indefinite period, Yeager said at Monday's City Council meeting.
Sources close to the matter say Conley is believed to be under investigation by the FBI.
Forbes also would not confirm that the officer was Conley but did say the accused officer is on leave from the department.
"Bad things happened to her because of his coercion and intimidation," Forbes said.
Dunbar police forwarded all questions on the matter to the Mayor's Office. Yeager could not be reached for comment Thursday.
