A U.S. Navy senior chief is facing court-martial over allegations of rape and aggravated assault, including an incident where prosecutors say he kicked a pregnant woman in the stomach, according to court records.
Senior Chief Cryptologic Technician (Collection) Randy W. Tompkins is accused of kicking the woman in San Diego in September 2017, and of pointing a loaded gun and a knife at a woman in Waldorf, Maryland, roughly eight months later, according to his charge sheet.
Victim names are redacted in the charge sheet provided to Navy Times, so it remains unclear how many people have accused the senior chief of crimes.
Navy Times does not name victims of alleged sexual assault.
Tompkins’ service record shows he was assigned to the Information Warfare Training Center in San Diego at the time of several of his alleged crimes, and then transferred to his current Washington, D.C., command, the Navy Cyber Warfare Development Group, in March 2018.
Reached by phone this week, Tompkins declined to comment.
Prosecutors allege that Tompkins raped a woman in San Diego in October 2017, and he faces a charge for “causing bodily harm” to a woman during a sexual assault the following month, according to charge sheets.
