FORT SILL, OK (KSWO)- Fort Sill says they're taking accusations of rape against a former high-ranking officer who served on post very seriously.

The Public Information Officers says they are aware of the accusations and because no charges have been filed, they cannot comment on the active investigation.

Court documents say it happened in August 2016 to a civilian employee.

The accuser says she was raped multiple times. Her attacker using a knife at one point and hitting her in the jaw on another occasion.

She says she and the suspect previously dated, but according to court documents after the relationship ended, she "was sexually assaulted on numerous occasions."

The suspect is identified as a "Judge Advocate officer in the United States Army with the rank of Captain."

The alleged victim's attorney says he's one of 24 chosen to lead criminal prosecutions of sexual assault, family violence and child abuse throughout the Army.

"He's a sex crimes prosecutor accused of rape… These are handpicked special prosecutors who are getting accused of sex crimes," said Don Gifford, the victim's attorney.

The military is in charge of the investigation. He has not been charged with any crime but has been removed from his role as a special prosecutor.
