On September 11, Patrol Officers with the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office were patrolling the Visalia area when they came across a man and a woman walking. They stopped to see if they were ok, and as they were talking, the woman mentioned that she wanted to report a complaint on a Woodlake Police Officer, who, she said, had sexually-assaulted her.
At that point, investigators with the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Persons Unit responded and took over the investigation.
Investigators interviewed numerous people during the investigation and discovered another victim, who said she’d been sexually-assaulted by that same Woodlake Police Officer. The victims do NOT know each other
On September 13, Tulare County Sheriff’s Detectives arrested 26-year-old Oscar Robles, a Police Officer with the Woodlake Police Department.
Robles is now facing charges of Penetration With a Foreign Object, False Imprisonment, Assault Under the Color of Authority and Intimidation of a Victim. Robles is being held in the Kings County Jail for his own protection.
If you know anything about this investigation, or may have had contact with Robles, you’re asked to call the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.
