Omaha City Council candidate, community activist charged with sexual assault of a minor
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - An arrest warrant was issued by Omaha Police for 26-year-old David Mitchell after a report of sexual assault of a minor in 2014.
OPD was made aware the assault in June 2020, according to a Tuesday news release from the department. Based on evidence provided during an investigation into the report, an arrest warrant for Mitchell was issued, the release states.
Out on bond for a robbery charge from 2019, Mitchell was booked into Douglas County Corrections on Tuesday for first-degree sexual assault of a minor and bond review, the release states.
Mitchell, owner of Gamers stores and candidate for City Council, was particularly active in the community over the summer, giving a statement during public comment on an agenda item about the death of George Floyd during a City Council meeting on June 2; and organizing protests of 11-Worth Cafe after racially charged posts appeared on the owner’s son’s Facebook account.
