Rape case dismissed against Evansville man


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Charges have been dismissed against an Evansville man accused of raping his co-worker at a local Subway.

Jordan Johnson, 20, was charged with three counts of rape and one count of sexual battery. The charges were dismissed Friday.

The alleged incident happened in 2018.

According to court documents, a woman told police that Johnson gave her a pill for a headache, but it made her ‘mentally and physically impaired.’

According to investigators, Johnson took the woman into a utility closet and forced her into various sexual acts.

Police were told there was another incident outside the restaurant that night.

Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Jess Powers told the Courier and Press the crime could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
