ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A third woman testified Tuesday morning in the sexual-assault trial of former Anchorage police officer Anthony Rollins, who stands accused of using his authority to assault six women.
The woman told jurors Rollins offered her a ride home from her brother’s house, but instead he took her to the police substation in Mountain View, where he raped her.
She told the jury she played with a tape dispenser as Rollins raped her to keep her mind off what was happening. The young woman also said she didn't report the rape because "he had all the power and could make life so much worse for me."
A fourth alleged victim also took the stand Tuesday afternoon. She will continue her testimony Wednesday. Prosecutors expect to wrap up their case by Monday.
