KANSAS CITY, Kansas (KCTV) – A man from Kansas City, Kansas shares his horror story of what he says he suffered at the hands of disgraced KCK detective Roger Golubski.
Golubski faces numerous federal charges related to rape, kidnapping and sex trafficking. But Dion Martin claims if investigators keep digging, they’ll find a lot more.
Martin says Golubski dragged him to the riverbank when he was a teenager and forced him to kneel. He would then steal Martin’s drug money and play Russian roulette on the back of Martin’s head.
“I could hear the chamber spinning,” Martin said. “I could hear it click back into place, then I felt the gun press against my head. He says, ‘I got you now’ and calls me the N-word.”
Martin says this has happened many times. He was always robbed, sometimes beaten, and sometimes stripped of his clothes.
“[He would]take my jacket, my pants, my shoes (and) then tell me to hurry up and make it home,” Martin said.
Martin said other officers were there sometimes: “They all join and laugh. “Yes, we got one. Let’s take his stuff.’”
Martin recently named the other officers under oath in an affidavit.
“I didn’t know what to expect,” Martin said. “I thought he was really going to kill me.”
We have reached out to Roger Golubski’s attorney for comment on Martin’s allegations. He issued a statement questioning the motivation and timing of Martin’s allegations:
It’s true that Martin has a criminal record. He’s open about the time he’s served in prison in connection with drug and assault charges. It is also true that Martin Lamonte knows McIntyre and has agreed to testify at his civil trial. McIntyre was wrongly convicted of murder and served 23 years in prison before being exonerated and released five years ago. In the civil suit, McIntyre claimed he was framed by Golubski. The city paid $12.5 million to settle the case.
Now the city is spending $1.7 million to digitize files from Golubski’s cases as part of an internal investigation. But proponents say that’s not enough. Prosecutors and a prominent social justice organization, ROC Nation, want the Justice Department to probe the entire ministry. They claim the charges against Golubski only scratch the surface of the problems within the Kansas City, Kansas Police Department. Activists are asking who else knew what happened.
“What about the other cases? For example, being taken to the river,” Martin asks. “What happens to things like that? That’s the question I want to know. What happens to things like that?”
Martin isn’t the only one accusing Golubski of bullying her on the riverbank.
Prosecutors say SK was beaten and raped by Golubski in numerous locations, including a cemetery, when she was in middle school.
SK says the worst moments were at the river, where Golubski told her he was responsible for the smell – alluding to dead bodies.
“He took away every bit of my sanity by putting a dog collar on me and walking me around like I was his pet and not a human. That is why the river is so devastating to me.”
Martin and “SK,” both allege family members tried to report what happened to police but were pressured or turned away. That means there are no records of complaints to review.
Golubski remains under house arrest while awaiting court. And federal prosecutors say their investigation is continuing.
