A man accused of raping a woman in West Virginia who was caught at Atlanta’s airport is a special constable with Toronto Community Housing Corporation, the agency confirmed.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Jordan Anthony Doswell, 34, was identified as a fugitive Sunday and arrested by Atlanta police at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
The Clayton County Sheriff's Office says Doswell allegedly broke into a woman's home in Huntington, West Virginia in September and raped her.
TCHC spokesperson Bruce Malloch says Doswell works in the Community Safety Unit of the TCHC as a special constable, a peace officer able to arrest people on the grounds of public housing units throughout the city.
Doswell remains in the Clayton County Jail awaiting extradition to West Virginia.
