Dawson County authorities say that a local man was arrested early last week on charges of false imprisonment and aggravated sodomy, following a domestic incident which allegedly occurred at a residence off Hwy. 53 in west Dawson County.

Bryan Keith Martin, 44, of Dawsonville, was arrested on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2020 and charged with battery family violence, aggravated sodomy, false imprisonment and interference with a 911 call.

According to a Dawson County Sheriff’s Office incident report, late on Feb. 17 deputies responded to a residence on Hobert Styles Road to investigate reports of suicidal threats and missing persons.

Warrants filed for Martin allege that between approximately 2 and 9 a.m. on Feb. 17, the 44-year-old physically prevented a female victim from getting to her phone to call 911 during a domestic violence incident, during which he allegedly pulled the victim out of her bed, forced a sexual act upon her, and prevented her from fleeing the residence.

Following an investigation at the residence, Martin was taken into custody by local deputies and taken to the Dawson County Jail where he is being held without bond.
