A detective for the Department of Veterans Affairs has been arrested, accused of forcible rape in south-central Nebraska.

40-year-old Justin Maltagliati, of Grand Island, was arrested and jailed on Friday evening. Grand Island police say a woman had reported that she'd been raped earlier on Friday.

Maltagliati remained in Hall County custody on Tuesday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.

Spokeswoman Anna Morelock of the VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System says Maltagliati works for the VA Police Service as a detective. She would not comment Tuesday on his current job status.

Court records say Maltagliati has pleaded not guilty in an unrelated Hall County drunken-driving case filed in June.
