An NYPD safety school agent was arrested in Queens Monday after being accused of raping his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint, The New York Daily News reports.
Cops busted 28-year-old Tommy Johnson at about 2:15 AM Monday, charging him with rape, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing and assault in connection with the Saturday incident. According to NBC, two illegal guns were found in Johnson's apartment.
It's not yet clear where Johnson worked as a safety agent. The NYPD website describes the post like so:
Every man and woman assigned to the School Safety Division takes an oath to provide security and ensure the safety of students, as well as faculty and visitors in New York City Public Schools.
News of the arrest comes just one week after a jury convicted NYPD officer Michael Pena for the sexual assault of a woman at gunpoint in Manhattan (the jury was deadlocked on the rape charge, leading to a mistrial for that charge), and just months after two officers were acquitted of rape and sentenced for official misconduct after a woman in the Lower East Side alleged she was raped by the two cops in her apartment. One of the cops, Kenneth Moreno, claimed he got into bed with the woman but only "snuggled" with her.
