Man sought after sexual assault in Bricktown

OKLAHOMA CITY – Police have released a sketch of a man they said sexually assaulted a woman outside the Coca-Cola Events Center in Bricktown last week.

The center was hosting a conference at the time.

“She left to walk down the street to get some Tylenol for headache, that was when she¬† noticed there was somebody behind her,” OKC Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight. “She said this person came up to her very quickly, sexually assaulted her and then for whatever reason, left the scene.”

The crime took place in the short distance between the event center and the Circle K where the woman went to buy Tylenol.

We showed the man’s sketch around Bricktown Thursday afternoon and as we did, people told us they had noticed more police in the area.

Several said the brazen attack scared them.

“This would be a fun place to go exercise and I was thinking about going by myself, or with a girlfriend, but I probably won’t do that now,” one woman said.

Meanwhile, police said they are trying to locate the man and hope someone will recognize him.

“You get a pretty good look at him from the drawing,” Knight said. “It’s a very good sketch of the suspect. Anyone with information on who he is, we want to hear from them through Crimestoppers.”
