Alleged Chicago Cop Rape Was An Interracial Crime: WIND-AM

WIND's Amy Jacobson

WIND radio's Amy Jacobson reported this morning that in the alleged March 30th rape of a North Side woman by 2 on-duty Chicago policemen, the purported perpetrators were Latino men while the victim was "a bubbly blond girl."

Jacobson, a former CBS-2 TV reporter, attributed the information to sources within the Chicago Police department. She said that six other women have made allegations of previous sexual misconduct by the, as yet unidentified, Latino officers.

She also reported that the woman, who was picked up by the two policemen near Wrigleyville and driven to her Rogers Park apartment, was taking medication for bi-polar manic depression.

According to WIND's Jacobson, the officers drank Absolut vodka with the woman, while playing strip poker at her apartment, before both of them had sex with her.

One of them had earlier had sex with the woman in their Police SUV while parked near Broadway and Barry, she said.

The incident has been under investigation by Chicago Police Internal Affairs for the past two weeks and Jacobson said that 911 tapes of the woman's neighbors' calls from the morning of the incident won't be released for another 1 to 2 months.

The identification of the two police criminal suspects as Latinos with a white female victim raises questions as to possible future moves by Cook County States Attorney Anita Alvarez, a Latina feminist.

NEWS UPDATE: Jacobson's information was proven correct as on May 11th, 10 year veteran officers Paul Clavijo and Juan Vasquez were charged in Cook County Criminal court with one count each of criminal sexual assault and one count of official misconduct.

They were suspended without pay from the Chicago Police Department and each released on $500,000 bond. Clavijo is also facing a separate criminal sexual assault charge stemming from a March 10th incident.
