A detective for the Department of Veterans Affairs has been arrested, accused of forcible rape in Grand Island.
40-year-old Justin Maltagliati, of Grand Island, was arrested and jailed on Friday evening.
Grand Island police say a woman reported she was raped earlier on Friday.
Maltagliati remains in Hall County custody Tuesday.
Spokeswoman Anna Morelock of the VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System says Maltagliati works for the VA Police Service as a detective.
She would not comment Tuesday on his current job status.
Court records say Maltagliati has pleaded not guilty in an unrelated Hall County drunken-driving case filed in June.
