There are new developments in the lawsuit against an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper accused of rape.

The attorney has added to the suit a second woman, who says OHP Trooper Eric Roberts also sexually assaulted her. The lawsuit says Roberts pulled over her car on July 8 where the Turner and Creek Turnpikes meet and made inappropriate sexual comments to her.

She texted a friend with the Trooper's tag number because she was afraid she might die when he instructed her to follow him, then get into his patrol car, the lawsuit claims. It also says he drove her to a secluded location and sexually assaulted her.

The woman says she didn't report it initially because she was afraid and thought no one would believe her, the document says.

After filing a complaint on Aug. 14, OHP told her they had video of the initial traffic stop from that day, she says.

Roberts' attorney could not be reached for comment, but previously has said his client is not guilty of the accusations.
