Wilmington police have arrested one of their own and charged the corporal with rape, extortion and official misconduct, according to city police.

A woman was walking on a Wilmington street on Oct. 16 when 11-year department veteran Cpl. Thomas Oliver Jr. pulled up and instructed her to sit in the passenger seat, according to court documents. He was in his full uniform and driving a marked vehicle.

The court documents said Oliver exposed himself and the two then had a conversation about an active warrant for her arrest. He instructed her to give him oral sex.

“The victim stated she could not remember the exact words used by the officer,” the documents said. “She felt it was obvious if she didn’t comply she would be taken to jail.”

The woman complied, city police said. She was then “allowed by Oliver to leave.”

Wilmington police said they suspended Oliver on the date they heard the victim’s story.

Police searched for evidence on the victim’s body and clothes and in Oliver’s patrol vehicle. The patrol vehicle was removed from service for the investigation.

You’re supposed to report sexual assault to police. But what if your rapist is an officer?

The Attorney General’s Office of Civil Rights and Public Trust was involved in the investigation. The detective who wrote the arrest documents asked that the records be sealed “due to the nature of this investigation” and who was involved. They weren’t sealed.

Oliver was arraigned Feb. 12 on $66,000 cash-only bail.

“The charges that have been filed are deeply troubling and disheartening,” Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said in a news release. “The charge that one of our officers abused his authority to victimize a member of the public in this manner is sickening.”

Anyone with more information on the incident or about Oliver can call 302-576-3632.
