ENID, Okla.-- A teenager said she was molested by a stranger in the middle of the night.
She did not want to go on camera, but talked to News Channel 4.
The teen said she had never seen the man prior to the incident, but she learned her dad knows him.
According to an affidavit, she was "awakened by a strange male lying in bed with her and touching her".
The 15-year-old said she "grabbed her phone and turned the flashlight on as she told the person to get away". T
he girl said she bolted for the door to find it locked. Police say thankfully she was able to make it out and ran outside to call 911.
“They were pretty quick on the ball,” neighbor Bobby Kelly praised the officers fast response.
Police said when they got there the girl was "visibly upset and appeared very scared".
Once they stepped inside the home police said they found Carlos Alonso Ruiz Perez, 24, on the couch.
The affidavit said his "pants were on backwards with his belt unfastened and hanging loosely."
“It’s ungodly yes,” Kelly said. “After I heard what happened it was more scarier then and I realized it could have gotten real twisted if it hadn’t of been for our law enforcement."
Perez was arrested for lewd molestation. He allegedly told investigators the teen was his girlfriend of two years.
According to court records he said she "was often the one to initiate the physical touching".
“I feel sorry for women today to tell the truth, you know, because there’s evil people all over,” Kelly said.
The teen told News Channel 4 her parents were upstairs sleeping when the incident happened.
Police say Perez told them he was at the house drinking earlier in the night and stayed over to avoid driving home. Perez is in jail on a $100,000 dollar bond.
