WSB-TV reports the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is handling the case of East Point police Sgt. Richard Goodine.
The victim's attorney, Thomas Reynolds, says Goodine detained her at a park Monday morning, drove her around the city, sexually assaulted her and later came to the hospital looking for her.
A GBI document indicates East Point police requested assistance with the allegation that "Goodine molested a juvenile female while on duty."
Police Chief Tommy Gardner told the station that Goodine also was investigated but not prosecuted in 2011 for sexual battery and child molestation involving a 15-year-old. The chief says the officer says he's innocent. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
