BALTIMORE — Only 12 of 115 Baltimore Police patrol cars remain out of service following an allegation of sexual assault possibly involving a police officer.

The remaining vehicles are expected to go back into service once crime lab technicians finish processing them.

On Sunday, detectives began investigating after a woman alleged that she was raped by a man who identified himself as a Baltimore Police officer.

As part of the investigation, 115 patrol cars were taken out of service to be processed for possible evidence.

Police don't believe the incident occurred inside a car, but wouldn't say where the victim reported it happening.

Thus far, police have not confirmed if they have identified any possible suspects or if a member of the department was even involved.
