OKC Police Arrest Man Wanted On Rape Charge
OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City police have arrested a man who is accused of kidnapping and raping his pregnant ex-girlfriend and holding her two young children hostage.
Police arrested Christopher Whitfield, 31, who also goes by the name Christopher Singer. Early Wednesday morning, he was booked into the Oklahoma County Jail on multiple charges, including first-degree rape, kidnapping, domestic assault and battery, and more.
Whitfield was wanted for raping and brutalizing his ex-girlfriend inside of his home on 1135 N.E. 20th in southeast Oklahoma City back in June, 2014.
According to court documents, Whitfield forced the ex-girlfriend and her two children, ages 8 and 3 into his home and held them hostage for three days. The arrest warrant states Whitfield "placed a large older television in front of the door so the children could not leave."
It states Whitfield also pulled a pistol on the 8-year-old little boy and put the pistol to the boy's head. He told the child that if he tried to escape he would kill him.
Whitfield reportedly forced the boy's mother into a back bedroom where he beat and raped her repeatedly using his fists, shoes, and a belt. The mother was able to escape at one point, but she only ran about half a block before she was recaptured and dragged back into the house.
Court documents revealed the young woman was beaten so badly she was almost unrecognizable to her family. She was able to escape after Whitfield left the home in her Grey Chevy Impala.
