Pine City Man Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Two Workers In Group Home
A Pine City man is accused of sexually assaulting two workers in the group home where he resided in.
According to charges filed Thursday in Pine County court, 36-year old Chad Phillip Johansen was arrested on Tuesday in connection with the incident. He was charged Thursday with kidnapping and six counts of first and second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Police say that Johansen set up zip ties on his bed at the group home, took the purse of a female staff member and dumped it on the floor in the hallway near his bedroom door.
The staff member saw her purse on the floor and went over to Johansen to confront him about it. That’s when he grabbed the woman’s arm, dragged her into his room and sexually assaulted her, according to the criminal complaint. A second female staff member tried to intervene, but Johansen had the first woman tied down and then grabbed the second staff member by the neck and held her between his legs.
Both victims screamed at Johansen that he was going to prison during the incident, and he said he didn’t care, the complaint states. One of the victims then screamed something about “Jesus,” and he stopped the assault, calmed down and went to the living room of the facility.
Johansen was arrested and taken to the Pine County Jail. The case is still under investigation at this time.
