The document stated Sullivan grabbed both by the hair, pulled their heads back and forced them to swallow a suboxone dissolvable strip.

Metro police said while the victims were walking to a local pizza place, he attempted to kiss them on the neck and touch their backside. Once they returned to the shelter, the victims laid down on their cots and Sullivan began kissing their necks and groping them.

He was taken into custody and is being charged with two counts of sexual battery and two counts of aggravated assault. Sullivan is being held on an $80,000 bond.
