“Take Care of Me the Right Way and I’ll let You Walk.” Cop Sexually Assaults Woman at Gunpoint: Report
COOK COUNTY — Officer Fernando Rodriguez was in court on Thursday after being charged with sexually assaulting a woman, according to reports.
The charges include attempting aggravated criminal sexual assault, aggravated unlawful restraint, and official misconduct.
The incident began when Officer Rodriguez, 52, instructed a 37-yr-old woman to get inside of his car, according to reports.
It was around 1 AM when the woman realized that after entering the officer’s car, he was trapping her.
She attempted to leave but he forced her to stay inside and began trying to sexually abuse her while he had his handgun nearby.
“Take care of me the right way and I’ll let you walk,” the officer told her, after showing her his handgun in an implicitly threatening manner, according to reports.
We don’t know what Officer Rodriguez was planning to do to her if she didn’t perform a sexual act on him, but apparently it involved his gun.
Because Officer Rodriguez was double parked while this incident occurred, his car got the attention of police who happened to be driving nearby.

When they approached his vehicle, he grabbed the woman’s left arm and told her “Be cool!” according to reports.
He then displayed his badge to the police officers to alleviate their concerns, saying “It’s OK guys, I’m on the job.”
The woman then abruptly managed to get out of the vehicle and told the officers what Rodriguez was doing.
Officer Rodriguez is now under disciplinary investigation by the sheriff’s office.
He has been given a bond and released, and is due to appear in court for possible conviction.
