A Rogers woman is accused of raping another woman.

Kersha Renee Johnson, 41, was arrested on suspicion of rape, according to a probable cause affidavit.

A Benton County Sheriff’s Office investigator was called on May 10 to a residence to speak with a woman who said another woman raped her, according to the affidavit.

The woman told authorities that Johnson contacted her and asked her to come to her home and help her with an issue that she was having, the affidavit states.

The woman said she went to Johnson’s residence and found Johnson tipsy, crying and naked. She said she asked Johnson to get dressed. She said Johnson then grabbed her breasts, according to the affidavit.

The woman said her breasts were forcefully exposed by Johnson and that Johnson placed her mouth on them, the affidavit states.

The woman told Johnson “no,” but Johnson then moved her hand lower, fondled and penetrated her and threatened to grotesquely injure her if she did not comply, the affidavit states.

The woman said she left Johnson’s home and returned to her own home, but Johnson later showed up and exposed herself to her. The woman escorted Johnson out of her home and called 911, according to the affidavit.

Another investigator spoke with the woman at the Sheriff’s Office on May 14. The woman gave the same account, the affidavit states.

That investigator then spoke with Johnson, who was already in the Benton County Detention Center on suspicion of commercial burglary, theft and several counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, the affidavit states.

Johnson at first said she only hugged the woman, but later confessed to placing her mouth on the woman’s breasts and penetrating her. Johnson said the woman wanted her to and encouraged her to do so, the affidavit states.

The investigator performed a criminal background check on Johnson and found that she had several prior arrests throughout the years, including passing bad checks, second-degree burglary, theft, burglary and possession of controlled substance, according to the affidavit.
