OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — A sketch was released by the Oklahoma City Police Department portraying a man they say abducted two teenage girls and sexually assaulted them last week.
The two isolated incidents occurred on the same day in two different locations. The victims involved contacted authorities after the abduction and sexual assault took place.
One of the victims was walking on NW 10th St. when the suspect approached her in his white truck. The suspect offered the victim a ride and she accepted.
While the victim was with the suspect, the suspect reportedly mentioned the need to smoke a cigarette and proceeded to park on a gravel road. At this point, the victim reported that the suspect tried to touch her breasts. The suspect also reportedly made lewd sexual comments, among other things. This particular victim said no to the man and with quick-thinking, asked him to drop her off at a local church; a courageous request. The suspect honored her request and told her he would return to her, according to a police report obtained by News 9.
On the same day, the suspect approached the second teenage victim. The victim reported heading to the bus terminal from school when the suspect approached her in his white truck. The suspect began communicating with the victim, and things escalated when the suspect allegedly grabbed the victim by getting ahold of her backpack. At this point, the suspect managed to pull the victim into the truck.
This victim informed authorities that the suspect made inappropriate sexual comments and grabbed her breasts. The victim courageously escaped the suspect by jumping out of the moving vehicle when the suspect was driving slowly. As she ran away, she reported that the suspect fled the scene in the opposite direction.
The responding officer located two cigarettes and submitted them as evidence, building a chain of custody. On Tuesday of this week, authorities released a sketch and images of the white truck they believe is connected to these crimes.
