EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - An Evansville man has been arrested after police say he drugged and raped a co-worker... during their shift.

Jordan Johnson, 19, is charged with three counts of rape and one count of sexual battery.

The victim told police that early in her shift at an Evansville restaurant, she had a headache and asked Johnson for Tylenol or aspirin.

She says after taking the pill Johnson gave her, she became impaired and was having a hard time remembering what happened next.

The manager of the restaurant told police she was not working that day, but checked in on her employees via a live video surveillance feed.

She says she saw the victim falling over, and there were several complaints from customers that employees were having sex inside the restaurant.

Police say after reviewing more of the surveillance, Johnson could be seen in a utility closet with the victim, and it appeared she was being forced to have sex.

They say he was later seen standing over the victim in the kitchen while her pants were down, and then groping her after she fell over a food prep table.

Police say Johnson denies remembering what happened, and refused to provide a DNA sample.
