Police released new information in the arrest of an off-duty Minco reserve officer, who is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in Oklahoma City.
Brett Johnson, 26, was arrested last Thursday night on charges of sexual battery and oral sodomy. Johnson is a reserve officer for the Minco Police Department, which means he’s volunteer. He also worked as a security guard.
According to a police report released on Monday, at about 11:15 p.m., Oklahoma City police officers responded to the report of a disturbance at the Cottages Apartment, located in the 1200 block of W. Hefner Road. A woman told police she was forced to do “sexual favors” to a security guard.
The victim originally told police she and her friend came to the apartment complex to meet up with another friend. However, police said she later admitted that she was a dancer for “private parties.”
The victim told police when they were walking through the apartment complex, they saw the security guard, later identified as Johnson, and they turned around and started to leave. That’s when Johnson told them to "freeze."
Johnson reportedly told the victim she was under arrest for trespassing and handcuffed her. He also told the victim that he needed to search her. The victim said Johnson took her to an apartment building that’s under construction. That’s where he reportedly asked her to perform sexual favors.
Officers were able to locate Johnson and take him into custody. Johnson denied the allegations. But he told police that he had called the victim to “hook up” with her.
Authorities said Johnson was not on duty with Minco police at the time of the alleged crimes. He had only been with the department since this spring, and has been relieved of duty until the investigation is over.
