NEW ORLEANS -- A Louisiana State Police spokesman has confirmed that detectives are finalizing a police report on a sexual assault allegation lodged against St. Bernard Parish President David Peralta.

The complainant has since recanted her allegations, but state police are proceeding based on her original call and items confiscated during a raid on Peralta's house, including clothing and bed sheets.

Once complete, the report will be submitted to the St. Bernard District Attorney for review.

Peralta said he is innocent.
