POLK COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

An affidavit provides details into the allegations against a peace officer charged with four counts of sexual assault.

Mark Shawn Hamilton, 51, of Goodrich, is charged with four counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of endangering a child.

According to arrest affidavits KTRE obtained through an open records request, two women came to the Polk County Sheriff's Office on Sept. 8 and 9 and alleged Hamilton sexually assaulted them separately on a consistent basis beginning in 2005.

Both women explained how Hamilton would restrain the women with belts and neck ties and would use "common police tactics" and his gun to subdue and control the women.

Both women also said Hamilton threatened them with physical harm and described how nobody would believe them if they made an outcry because he was a police officer.

According to an affidavit, one of the women was able to provide video proof of Hamilton beating her with a boot, while she held her one-year-old child. This was how Hamilton was charged with endangering a child.
