SAN DIEGO – An off-duty Yuma police officer was arrested in San Diego Friday on sexual assault charges.
San Diego police officers responded to a sexual assault call in the 4700 block of Marlborough Dr. at 4:23 a.m. and arrested 33-year-old Jared Elkins. He was booked into the San Diego County Jail, but he has since been released, a jail clerk said.
Authorities have released no details about the alleged crime.
“This investigation is still ongoing.” SDPD public-affairs Lt. Scott Wahl said.
Elkins has been a police officer with the Yuma Police Department for seven years. The department said Monday Elkins will be placed on paid administrative leave pending the resolution of the case.
