TSA Agent arrested for rape

A rape warrant was issued for the arrest of Paul Magnuson.

The warrant was issued following a joint investigation by the Cleveland Division of Police Sex Crimes Unit and the Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General.

Magnuson, a Transportation Security Agent, is accused of raping a northeast Ohio boy he had been mentoring as a big brother.

The 44-year old was a mentor with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Greater Cleveland when the assault allegedly took place.  According to the police report, the victim used to sleep over Magnuson's house last year.  And during that time Magnuson sexually assaulted the victim as many as four times.

Magnuson had gone to work for the TSA in Germany.

He was arrested in New Jersey and is currently awaiting extradition to Cleveland.
