OKLAHOMA CITY – Police say a young girl was molested over the holidays by a man more than four times her age.
The suspect has a long criminal history and his rap sheet just got longer. Mark Miles, 57, is accused of molesting a 13-year-old girl.
The girl, from Texas, was visiting her father for the holidays. They went to his ex-girlfriend’s house to see his other children.
“The daughter ended up in a room a 57-year-old man who made inappropriate advances toward her.” MSgt. Gary Knight said.
According to the crime report, Miles “made out with her and touched her breasts.” He also asked when her birthday was and stated “I’ll give you something special if you know what I mean.” The document goes on to say Miles then asked the victim if she would be his girlfriend. When the young girl tried to escape, Miles threatened “If you try to leave I’ll hurt you.”
The abuse when on for about 10 minutes before Miles let the girl go. She immediately told her father, who called police.
Miles was arrested for lewd acts with a minor and kidnapping.
“Kidnapping comes into play, not because they’re grabbed off the streets or anything, but because she was not free to leave.” Knight said. “She felt like she was forced to stay in the room with him.”
Miles has previously been arrested on drug charges, assault and battery and rape.
