According to a statement provided to Daily Voice, Sheetz PR Management has responded to the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl who had passed out in her own vomit in a Sheetz restroom by a store employee.
The incident took place on October 30, 2022, at 529 East King Street in Shippensburg, as per the affidavit of probable cause obtained by Daily Voice from area police officer Eric Varner.
Sheetz PR Manager Nick Ruffner stated, “At Sheetz, the safety of our customers is our highest priority — and we take any allegations of employee misconduct very seriously. The alleged incident that occurred at our Shippensburg, Pennsylvania location involving one of our former store employees is very disturbing, and Sheetz took immediate action in response to this.
This person is no longer employed by Sheetz and we will continue to work with local police and support them as this investigation continues.” Ruffner also added, “We will continue to do everything in our power to ensure a safe experience for our customers at this store.”
The court documents revealed that the employee, 22-year-old Demarcus Shamir Johnson, knew the victim was a minor, as he had previously flirted with her. The victim’s older sister had warned Johnson to stay away and informed him of the girl’s age.
