Kentucky police detective allegedly attempts to sexually assault a rape victim

A police detective in Kentucky faces charges after allegedly offering a ride home to a rape victim, but instead taking her to a motel and asking her for oral sex, according to People.com.

Police Det. John Nissen of the Hillview Police Department in Kentucky was indicted by a grand jury in Bullitt County, KY, on charges of theft by deception, witness tampering and official misconduct, according to The Pioneer News.

Nissen has been suspended, People reported.

An Investigation Is Underway

Hillview Police Chief William Mahoney confirmed the indictment in a statement and said the police agency is holding its own review of Nissen’s alleged actions.

Bullitt County Commonwealth attorney Shelly Alvey shared the following details about the alleged September 2017 incident with The Pioneer News:

“Police interviewed the woman at a police station about an alleged assault and Nissen offered to drive her home but, instead, took her to the home of the alleged perpetrator. It appeared the alleged victim was under the influence of alcohol when this all took place, Alvey said. From there, Nissen and the alleged perpetrator pooled their money so the woman could by a cell phone at Wal-Mart. Nissen then drove the woman to a motel, paid for the room, asked her to perform oral sex on him and then ordered her to move to another jurisdiction.”

Nissen is scheduled to be arraigned Monday and has not yet entered a plea, People reported.

The police department became concerned about Nissen’s alleged actions and reported the case to the Kentucky State Police, Mahoney said in the published statement.

“If the allegations against Detective Nissen are found to be true, you can be assured that we will handle the matter appropriately,” the chief said in the statement. “The alleged behavior is, most definitely, not in line with the values of our agency.”

Unexpected Fall From Grace

This developing story emerges in juxtaposition with developments in 2015, when Nissen was hailed in a People.com feature after finding a woman in distress parked on a roadside after she learned her sister had died.

The officer told People.com that he held the woman’s hand and allowed her to cry on his shoulder, and even made arrangements for a family member to come pick her up.

“I wanted her treated the way I would want my family to be treated if they needed help,” Nissen told People.com.
