San Antonio police officer Humberto Zuniga has been placed on administrative leave at the San Antonio Police Department after being arrested Saturday for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman police said he was in a relationship with.

According to the woman, Zuniga had sex with her without her consent. She told police she managed to stop him by grabbing a knife and cutting his arm. The victim called the police and Zuniga later was arrested.

Zuniga, an 18-year veteran of SAPD, has a history of receiving disciplinary action from his employer. In 2015, he served a suspension after allegedly threatening to send sexually explicit videos of his ex-girlfriend to her friends and family if she refused to drop a civil lawsuit against him

Police said an investigation into the case is ongoing.
