OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man is facing several charges of rape after police say a teenage victim came forward with allegations of abuse stemming from her childhood.

Authorities say a teenage girl called police to report a long history of abuse by 43-year-old John Lowery.

According to the arrest affidavit, the victim told officers that when she was 14-years-old, Lowery told her she could visit a friend if she paid ‘a price.’

At that point, the victim claimed Lowery forced her to give him oral sex.

As she got older, she told police Lowery forced her to have sex with him “one to two times a week” until she was 15-years-old.

Lowery was arrested for 11 counts of first-degree rape, forcible sodomy and sexual abuse of a child.
