A San Diego County sheriff’s deputy is accused of trying to keep law enforcement officers from arresting a suspect in a sex assault over the weekend in Temecula.

Deputy Lauren McAllister, 37, was arrested by Temecula police just before 9 p.m. on Sunday in the 32000 block of Poppy Avenue, in Temecula.

McAllister was arrested as officers tried to locate Matthew Frembling of Murrieta who had been identified as a potential suspect in a sex assault.

A 26-year old woman met Riverside County deputies outside the home on Poppy Avenue and told them she had been assaulted by Frembling who was still inside the home.

Deputies said McAllister got involved and tried to keep officers from locating Frembling.

She has been charged with two felonies and a misdemeanor, including resisting and obstructing a public officer.

McAllister is currently on administrative leave.

An internal affairs investigation has been initiated, according to the Riverside County sheriff’s department.

Frembling has been arrested and booked at the Southwest Detention Center along with McAllister.
