Rochester man arrested on suspicion of sex with child, accused of threatening 13-year-old girl with gun

(ABC 6 News) – A Rochester man is accused of coercing a child into sex using a gun, according to Olmsted County Court records.

Rochester police arrested Jonathan Mark Tompkin, 36, on Wednesday, Aug. 16, after a report that Tompkin had found a girl via Snapchat’s location feature and begun a sexual relationship with her.

Tompkin faces charges of 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct with a child under age 14; 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct with a child–armed with dangerous weapon; and felony terroristic threats.

Police claim that Tompkin also provided the child with alcohol and marijuana.

Court records filed early Friday, Aug. 18, allege that Tompkin located the child on Snapchat while she was visiting Rochester, and asked her to hang out.

The child allegedly told Tompkin no — but he tracked her location and picked her up, taking her to his home in the 2600 block of Charles Court NW.

The child told police she told Tompkin she was only 13, and he responded positively.

Court records state that the child was afraid because Tompkin had her address, had a gun in his house and showed it to her, and pointed it at her at one point.

The girl also told police Tompkin used force to have sex with her, told her he “owned” her, and talked about kidnapping her and making her move in with him when she turned 18.

He also threatened to shoot the child, according to court documents.

A medical exam revealed sexual injuries to the child, according to court records.

Police searched Tompkin’s residence and allegedly found drug paraphernalia, a 9mm hand gun with ammunition, “surveillance,” and birth control items.

Tompkin told police he thought the child was 23 years old, but had never touched her, according to court records.
