DES MOINES, Iowa — The Ankeny Police Department is being sued by a drug informant, a woman who claims officers failed to protect her from being raped.
She says it happened when they sent her into a meeting with David Flores, but Flores insists the incident never happened.
“I`m not going to stop until I fix this until I make sure that everybody knows this isn`t true,” Flores tells Channel 13’s Stephanie Moore in a phone interview.
The lawsuit filed last week alleges rape. However, Flores hasn’t been charged and he hasn’t even spoken to police about the incident.
The lawsuit claims a woman, identified as “Jane Doe” reportedly met with Flores while she was working with Ankeny Police and the Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force.
Flores, who is being held in the Polk County Jail, says he is upset the woman’s name isn’t being revealed and he hopes more information comes forward to clear his name.
“I have a son, I have people that love me and care about me and whether it matters or not I do not want nobody to think that about me whether they know me or not,” says Flores.
Flores was out on bond awaiting a retrial for first degree murder at the time the alleged victim claims Flores attacked her.
He is being held in jail until his trial on a different crime.
