Man Wanted For Hiding, Then Attacking Women In NW OKC Business Restrooms

OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City Police are on the hunt for a man wanted for attacking a woman in the bathroom. Turns out the man may be connected to two other similar incidents that happened a few blocks away.

All three incidents happened inside businesses along Classen within a few hours of each other. A terrifying surprise to the women seeing a man's hand reach under their stall.

One woman told police she found it odd to smell alcohol coming from a stall in the women's restroom. Just a she sat down to use the restroom, a man's hand appeared on the floor.

Police said the woman immediately left the stall, but the man blocked her from leaving.

“He pushed her down to the ground and kept her from leaving. She screamed and cried for help,” said Officer Megan Morgan, Oklahoma City Police.

“I was just sitting here looking at some texts on my phone and I heard some cries upstairs,” said Timothy Trujillo, who works in the building.

The woman's cries for help echoed throughout the building that sits on the corner of NW 36th and Classen.

“Then I could really hear it was more of a scream,” said Trujillo.

A coworker rushed to help but the man pushed back on the door.

According to police, the woman heard the victim scream "Oh God somebody please help me". The coworker eventually managed to push open the door allowing the woman trapped to escape.

“I was watching the top walkway and this fella comes down the stairs and just nonchalantly walks right through the building, that's why I was able to grab some shots of him going by,” said Trujillo.

Investigators believe this was the third time the man struck on Thursday.

Police received similar reports of a man in the women’s restroom. First, at NW 45th and Classen at 12:22 p.m., then another call at NW 43rd and Classen at 1:12 p.m.

Police said no assaults occurred at the first two locations.

Investigators suspect the man changed clothes each time he went inside the bathroom.

Police also said they found the man's name written inside the bathroom stall, a name that matches a known person in the police database.
