PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

An arrest warrant has been issued for a former Port of Portland firefighter, accused of raping one of his coworkers on a work trip.

The case began with a fire department training trip to Texas last fall.

A female firefighter, who will remain anonymous, says she was raped on the trip by one of her port coworkers, Jason McCann.

McCann was put on unpaid leave and recently fired.

After almost a year into the investigation, the Grapevine, Texas police department issued a warrant for McCann’s arrest on sex assault charges.

At last check, he has not been taken into custody.

Court documents say the alleged victim received a settlement of $325,000 from the port.

Her husband, a fellow firefighter at the port, also received a settlement of $15 000. He claimed he had workplace anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress after the assault.

The alleged victim has since resigned from her job
.
The Port of Portland refused an interview, but released a statement saying in part:

"The Port of Portland takes all complaints seriously. Consistent with our policies, we conducted and concluded an internal investigation. As a result, McCann's employment was terminated August 17, 2015 for violation of workplace policies and Port ordinances.

Once McCann is taken into custody, he will be brought back to Texas to be arraigned on the sex abuse charges in front of a judge. 

FOX 12 tried stopping by his home today, but no one answered the door.
