Little Rock man accused of sexual assault


A Little Rock man was arrested after he allegedly sexually assaulted an employee at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff in late November.

Dominic Harper, 22,*** allegedly went into the office of the employee to pick up test scores on Nov. 21, and while there, engaged in unwanted sexual conversation and sexual contact, a probable cause affidavit from University Police Investigator Linda Johnson said.

Johnson said Harper allegedly picked up the victim and pinned her against the wall, and another employee reported hearing the alleged victim demand “to be released” and for Harper to “stop touching her and get out of her office.”

Harper was arrested early Tuesday morning after previous attempts to locate him were unsuccessful.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Harper after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with fourth-degree sexual assault.

Bridgforth ordered Harper to have no contact with the alleged victim and told him to come back to court Jan. 15.
