Forcing an interaction is doable since 10.0. Please have a look at 
example/extended/biasing/GB02 . You may also scale the cross-section by 
a large factor (in what case, please see GB01).

Likely this example GB02, mimicing the force collision scheme of MCNP, 
provides more than you need (ie : it has a force collision part + a 
force uncollided one, to cover all cases, but you may need only the 
collision part). Adapting this example to better fit your need is 
doable. Please let us know if you would be interested by this.

Also, Geant4 does not have neutrino interactions yet. Do you provide 
your own ?
