Police seek suspect in alleged Edmond rape

EDMOND — Partying at several area bars along Memorial Road were part of an alleged rape, according to a report released Monday by the Edmond Police Department.

Friday afternoon, Edmond Police Officer Roger Shortt was dispatched to the OU Medical Center Edmond emergency room to take a report about an incident that occurred during the previous night, according to a report filed by Shortt.

Upon arrival, Shortt and his field training officer spoke with the victim who said she and several friends were out at two Quail Springs area bars during the night of June 14, police said.

At some point in the evening, the victim left the bars and went to her home where she had an argument with her roommates, police said. The suspect suggested that they go to his house; the victim did not know the exact location of the home, but believed it was in Edmond, police said.

When they arrived several individuals were present, and they continued to hang out while drinking and smoking in the garage, police said.

It was early in the morning and the victim recalled a thunderstorm occurring at about 3 a.m. on June 15, police said. The victim went into a bathroom, locked the door and fell asleep, police said.

She was seated on the toilet when she believes a female unlocked the door and let the suspect into the bathroom, police said. She asked him to leave the bathroom but he did not, police said.

Police said the suspect reportedly picked up the victim and carried her to a bedroom, placed her on a bed and told her she could sleep there. Police said when the suspect reportedly asked her to have sex with him she replied, “Go away, we’re just friends. Go away, I want to sleep.”

After falling asleep on the bed, the victim thought she was having a nightmare, police said. However, she said she did have a vivid memory of the suspect having intercourse with her, police said. She awoke with her shorts and underwear off, she told police, according to the incident report.

When she said, “Did you just do that to me?” the suspect denied doing anything and acted like a nice guy, according to the police report.

The victim left the home and drove around Edmond for a couple of hours, police said. She contacted a family friend who accompanied her to OU Medical Center Edmond. From there, she was transported to Southwest Medical Center for a SANE exam, police said. A nurse confirmed to police the victim did arrive for the exam.

Police said the exact location of the rape was unknown because the victim didn’t recall the address she drove to or from on the evening of June 14 or the morning of June 15. The person mentioned as the suspect has had several changes of address making it difficult to determine where he currently lives, police said.  

Police had no further suspect information immediately available. | 341-2121, ext. 108
