City official under investigation in assault *

KFI's Eric Leonard is reporting online that Andrew Adelman, the general manager of the city's Department of Building and Safety, is being investigated by the LAPD as "the prime suspect" in connection with an alleged sexual assault. "A command-level source at LAPD confirms the investigation is ongoing," Leonard says, but there have been no charges filed or arrest made. Adelman "did not accept a call" to his office for comment, Leonard posts.

* 6:30 update: Adelman has been placed on administrative leave by the mayor's office, which confirms there is an investigation underway.
