Physical Therapist Charged After Teen Incidents


A physical therapist has been booked into the Tulsa County Jail after two teenage girls say he made sexual advances toward them.

32-year-old Richard Johns II from Glenpool works in Henryetta.

He was arrested this morning and charged with performing lewd acts with a minor.

A teenage girl told investigators that Johns touched her inappropriately during a physical training session in December. The girl also claimed Johns sent her sexual messages and images on Snapchat.

Detectives were then told of a second victim, another teenage girl. She told investigators Johns sent her sexual messages in May, but did not accuse him of inappropriate touching of any kind.

Authorities say the ‘SnapChat’ account belonging to Johns was registered to an Email address associated with the Physical Therapy Central clinic in Henryetta, where Johns works.

Authorities are looking into the potential for more victims.
