Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police are looking for a man they say stabbed and sexually assaulted a homeless woman downtown.

Officers said the woman was stabbed Monday morning near 2nd and Houston and that she crawled to the bus station at 3rd and Denver just after 1:45 a.m.

Police said a passerby saw the woman bleeding and called 911.

The woman gave police a description of the person responsible and officers said they believe they know him.

They believe the suspect was involved in another stabbing and sexual assault over the summer.

Police said they believe both the suspect and victim are homeless, and after recent violent crimes against the homeless, police believe Tulsans are taking notice.

"You know, I think the average citizen is looking out for the homeless a little bit. I think they're actually trying to help them a little more," Officer Adam Ashley said.

TPD said the victim is going to be okay.

If you have any information, you’re asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
