DeKalb County, GA – A man paralyzed from the waist down allegedly zip-tied a woman in his home, demanded sex with her and assaulted her.
Johnnie Thompson, 31, of Decatur, allegedly Tased and shot at a woman who refused his demands, DeKalb County police detective Chris Tappan told Channel 2.
Thompson, who uses a wheelchair to get around, allegedly paid an exotic dancer to perform at his home, but he turned violent when she arrived, Tappan said.
“(He) pulled out a hand gun and a Taser and coerced her to his back bedroom where he had video cameras set up (and) computers,” “He forced her to take her clothes off.”
Thompson then allegedly zip-tied the woman’s ankles and demanded sex before she refused, Tappan said.
“He fired a Taser at her, not once, but twice in her chest,” Tappan told the news station. “She started to struggle with her captor. He pulled out a handgun and fired two shots at her.”
This is Johnnie Thompson’s home, which is where authorities say he attempted to hold at least two women against their will.
Tappan said the dancer eventually pushed Thompson out of the room, cut herself free, called 911 and escaped from a window.
Officers found her partially nude with the prongs from the Taser still stuck in her chest.
Thompson was arrested and charged with false imprisonment and aggravated assault, according to DeKalb County Jail records.
Police said Thompson shares the home with his parents, and more zip-ties and a machete were found in the home.
Thompson told police the woman “went crazy,” attacked him and he was forced to defend himself.
Police told Channel 2 another exotic dancer filed an assault report against Thompson three months ago, and police are searching for anymore potential victims.
Sir sir. Guys he doesn’t even have working parts. His penis doesn’t work. From the waist down he’s useless. You know I gotta be compassionate just a bit. Imagine your region not working. I’d imagine he’d have a difficult time having sex. Look at em. He’s losing hair, dick don’t work, paralyzed. But he still manages to have power. He can buy weapons.
He can’t have sex, but he can kill.
