Ind. medic claims firefighter sexually assaulted her

The firefighter was placed on leave during an investigation; the paramedic said he drove her home after a concert and she woke to him performing a sex act on her


INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — An Indianapolis firefighter was placed on administrative leave as part of the investigation into a claim of sexual assault involving a paramedic.

The victim is a paramedic with the Indianapolis Emergency Medical Services and questions have been raised about how those claims were first handled.

The paramedic reported the sexual assault in June, but it wasn’t until late Friday afternoon that police questioned the victim. The victim said the incident occurred after the married on-duty firefighter offered to drive her home from a downtown concert after she apparently had consumed too much alcohol.
