Oklahoma authorities issue BOLO for rape suspect

CANADIAN COUNTY, Okla. - Oklahoma authorities have issued a BOLO for a rape suspect.

On December 18, 2017, authorities say a rape occurred near Gregory Rd. and Hefner Rd. in Canadian County.

Officials say the victim described the alleged rapist as a 21-year-old Chinese male, approximately 5'6", 140 to 150 lbs, brown eyes, black hair with shaved sides and a Mohawk top and had numerous pimples on his face, chest and back.

The victim also told investigators the suspect is left handed and spoke with a Chinese accent and lisp.

The man reportedly had a large tattoo of an owl on his left inside arm from his elbow to his wrist.  The owl was brown with a black outline and gold eyes.

The suspect was last seen driving a silver Subaru or a Nissan sedan with a black interior and a Bob Moore tag on the front.

He allegedly told the victim he had just moved to the Yukon area from Wichita, Kansas.

The suspect allegedly abducted and raped a 17-year-old girl as she was trying to walk to work in south Oklahoma City.

"He had a large knife with him, certainly dangerous because people that rape and sexual type crimes, that seems to be a serial type crime and they will be motivated to try it again, " said Lt Mike Grimes of the Canadian County Sheriff's Department"He took advantage of a person that was trying to go out here and do what is right and another thing he is a potential threat to anyone else."
