West Memphis Councilman Allegedly Admits to Rape

West Memphis police are looking for a city councilman who allegedly admitted to rape.  The incident happened on January 10, 2005.

Alderman Herman Coleman, 60, allegedly admitted to the rape to police.  The police report filed by the victim says Coleman was buying a house from her, and as the two of them talked over the deal, he grabbed her and pushed her into her bedroom where he raped her.

Police issued a warrant for Coleman's arrest Friday, and he was supposed to turn himself in to police Monday.  He did not, so police are looking for him.
