(KAIR)--The female victim of aggravated sexual battery at the hands of an Elwood, Kansas Police Officer was "detained or confined" by him at the time of the crime.

That allegation is outlined in a criminal complaint filed Monday in Doniphan County District Court.

30-year-old Aaron Matthew Newberry was arrested by the Elwood Police Department July 21 on charges of aggravated sexual battery and mistreatment of a confined person.

He has since been formally charged, making a first appearance in a Doniphan County courtroom on Monday.

He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on August 7.

Nemaha County Attorney Brad Lippert is named in court documents as the special prosecutor in the case.

Newberry remains in custody at the Doniphan County Jail.

His bond is set at $50,000.

It remains unknown how long Newberry had served as an Elwood Police Officer.

His current status with the department, following his arrest, also remains unknown.

A telephone message left for Elwood Police officials on the morning of July 27 has gone unreturned.

A Freedom of Information Act request sent to the City of Elwood by MSC News later that day, seeking public information pertaining to Newberry's employment, has also gone unanswered.
