ENID, Oklahoma -- The president of a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered center in Enid has been arrested for lewd molestation of a minor child.

According to EnidGLBT.org, Nathan Bowen is President of the Enid GLBT Community Center located in the 1300 block of S. Van Buren Street.

According to the police report, Bowen and the victim began texting each other sexual messages after the victim met Bowen on Friday. The molestation incident happened on Sunday after Bowen allegedly picked up the minor at a park and took him to a home in the area.

The report said Bowen told the victim to take off his clothing, which the victim complied except for his underwear, and Bowen took his clothing off. The victim said Bowen gave him oral sex then asked the victim to give him oral sex and also asked the victim to come home with him so they could have sex, but the victim said he didn't want to.

The report goes on to say the victim told Bowen he needed to go home and on the way home, the victim exited Bowen's car and returned to the park where he was picked up by his mother.

The victim's mother called police after she checked her son's phone and found sexually graphic text messages.

Nathan Bowen's attorney Brittany M. Novotony released the following statement regarding his arrest:
"The individual accusing Mr. Bowen is a 15-year-old young man who met Mr. Bowen at a Valentine's event at The Center on Saturday, and then volunteered to help Mr. Bowen with chores at The Center on Sunday. While they worked on chores, the teenaged accuser, who is physically larger than Mr. Bowen, began kissing Mr. Bowen and requesting that he have sex with him. When Mr. Bowen refused to have sex with the teenaged accused, the teen became visibly angry and said, "I always get what I want." Mr. Bowen believes forensic examination of all the evidence will confirm that Mr. Bowen did not have sex with the teenaged accuser."
