Editor's Note: Warning, this story contains some graphic sexual language.

Lufkin Police officers arrested a 38-year-old man for sexual assault and burglary after he allegedly kicked down the door to an apartment in the 2300 block of N. Raguet and sexually assaulted a female acquaintance Sunday morning.

Garland Johnson, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County Jail on felony charges of kidnapping, bail jumping and failure to appear, burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit another felony, sexual assault, theft and use of a vehicle in another crime, and theft with one or more previous convictions. Collectively, his bond has been set at $47,500.

According to Sgt. Mike Shurley, a spokesman for the Lufkin Police Department, LPD officers responded to a 911 call about a sexual assault in progress at approximately 7 a.m. Sunday. He said the victim, a woman in her 20s, managed to get away from her attacker and called 911 from another location.

When the LPD officers arrived on the scene, they allegedly found Johnson inside the woman's apartment. Shurley said Johnson was completely naked and in the process of masturbating. The responding officers said it appeared as though Johnson was on some kind of drug.

Shurley said further investigation revealed that Johnson had outstanding warrants on him for kidnapping and another sexual assault that occurred in Trinity County. He added that Johnson had jumped bail on both of those charges.

The sexual assault victim told Lufkin Police officers that Johnson had come over to her apartment on two previous occasions and banged on her door, demanding that she let him inside. Shurley said on Johnson's third visit, he allegedly kicked the door down and sexually assaulted the woman.

Johnson's two theft charges were issued by another agency. According to the Angelina County Jail Website, Johnson has numerous other arrests on his record dating back to 1995, including aggravated kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault, assault, assault causing bodily injury, and criminal trespass.
