Muskogee County Sheriff's Office investigators are searching for a man they said raped a woman he met after trying to buy her cell phone through her Craigslist ad.
Muskogee County investigator Coletta Peyton is working with Muskogee police to search for an alleged sexual attacker. The police department has at least three victims describing a similar situation where the victim’s meet their attacker through an Internet transaction.
The latest attack happened Monday night around10:00 p.m. A woman in her twenties met a man who told her he wanted to buy her cell phone at Phillips 66 convenience store in Muskogee.
When they met he told her he wanted to have his wife look at the phone at their house, so he asked the woman to follow him in his four-door black Lexus with dents in it to their house a few miles away. Once they met at the home, the woman did not realize it was an abandoned home at 7611 East Hancock Street.
“She said it looked strange but she noticed curtains in the window, by then he put a Taser to her neck and forced her inside, then asked her if she was a cop and if she was wearing a wire and made her take off her clothes and then he raped her,” said Peyton. “He stole her purse which she said had a handgun in it and he took her clothes but left her panties and her coat.”
Peyton said she ran across the yard to a neighbor’s home and asked for help.
They called 911 and gave her some clothes to put on.
She made a rape and robbery report with the MCSO. She also had a rape exam that was sent to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
