Gary Guy Oklahoma County Jail

OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a man during an attempted robbery.

On Aug. 24, officers were called to a 7-Eleven in the 1100 block of N.W. 10th St. after a man told dispatchers that he was assaulted by a man wearing a dress.

The victim told police that he purchased a drink at the convenience store and was followed outside by a man wearing a green dress with flowers.

“[Victim] said the black male asked him repeatedly for a dollar and [victim] told him no, many times,” the arrest affidavit read.

At one point, the victim claims that the man grabbed his crotch and made a lewd proposition to him in an attempt to get $10.

When the victim continued to say no, the man reportedly “grabbed [victim] by the face and ripped his glasses from his nose breaking an arm on the glasses and they were bent out-of-place.”

The report claims that the suspect ripped the pocket on the victim’s vest and pushed him to the ground.

However, the victim says he was able to get away with his wallet.

Authorities identified the alleged suspect asĀ 43-year-old Gary Guy, who denied the accusations.

Guy was arrested on complaints of robbery by force, sexual battery and assault and battery.
