OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City man was arrested after allegedly raping a woman who was walking home from work.

On Sept. 2, a woman told police she was walking home from work around 12:06 a.m. when a man approached her.

The man allegedly told the woman that he had been assaulted and needed her help.

She told police that the man’s shirt was “covered in blood” and that he had at least two cuts on his head.

When the woman offered to call police, she says the man said, “No, I got something in my pocket that will get me in trouble.”

According to the police report, the woman kept walking, but the man pushed her to the ground.

The man reportedly told the woman that he didn’t want to hurt her, but he had to because someone hurt him.

The woman says that is when the man, who police later identified as 32-year-old David Graves, raped her.

According to the arrest affidavit, Graves allegedly stole the woman’s phone and threatened to kill her if she called the police.

Police were able to locate Graves and arrested him for rape, oral sodomy and robbery.
