Riverdale Police Officer James Larry Robinson Jr has been arrested and formally charged after he raped and assaulted a woman in his custody.
The horrifying ordeal began in August when a woman was being transported from the Riverdale Police Department to the Clayton County Jail. Instead of a direct route, Officer James Robinson Jr pulled alongside an abandoned building and raped the handcuffed woman. After getting out of the Clayton County Jail, the woman, doing what police wouldn’t do, contacted a local business to request video surveillance of the rape.
Officer Robinson Jr. turned himself in without incident after charges were filed. He is currently locked up in Clayton County Jail on no bond.
Todd Spivey, Chief of Police, states on the department’s official website, “Our goal is to make citizens and officers safer as they live and work in the City of Riverdale.”
