A man with a lengthy criminal record was taken into custody and charged with sexual battery after he allegedly threatened a woman coming out of a bathroom
On Monday, police responded to a call from a residence on North Chamberlain Avenue. They then spoke to the victim of what was considered a forced fondling. She said Johnny Armour, 64, had just gotten out of jail when he went to her residence, where he also stayed.
When he went into the residence, an unclothed Armour encountered the victim coming out of the bathroom. He rubbed his privates against her leg and allegedly told her, “We’re going to (expletive) in the shower.”
After this, she pushed him away and ran out of the house. A friend of the victim picked her up and drove her away, but she did not tell him why she was leaving the house. When she told her family what happened, she then called the police and expressed the intent to prosecute.
When police spoke to Armour, he did not want to tell them what happened that day. However, he said “he would do it again as soon as he was released from jail,” according to the police report. He was then taken into custody and escorted to the Hamilton County Jail.
A neighbor told police she had video evidence of the victim confessing to making the story up. However, the neighbor later admitted to lying about the evidence, saying she wanted the victim to be arrested because the victim was “not liked around the neighborhood.”
