A former assistant manager at a Tennessee Dollar General is accused of raping two women he caught shoplifting.
According to Clarksville Police Department, Robert Lindlau, 38, caught the two women shoplifting and took them to a back office.
While in the locked room, he allegedly had the women, 44 and 32, perform sexual favors on him.
He stated that he’d called police and that they’d be arriving soon. However, authorities stated that Lindlau never made the call.
The women stated that they did what they were told because they feared for their safety.
Lindlau then let the women go with the items they had been caught stealing.
Lindlau was later arrested and indicted on two rape counts.
