Man Accused Of Impersonating Officer, Strangling Ex-Girlfriend & Leading Police On Chase
A metro man is accused of suffocating his ex-girlfriend, and leading police on a chase around the east side of Norman.
Aaron Mullin now faces five charges and will be in court next Tuesday.
The alleged attack happened on February 9 off Erie Ave.
The reported victim was able to escape but was suffocated by Mullin with a pillow according to investigators.
Her friend called 911 to try and help catch Mullin.
“He apparently, just showed up and beat her up and she was able to escape, and is at her parents’ house, and he’s still at the address with the children,” said the 911 caller.
According to court documents, the victim had a protective order against Mullin, but he knocked on her door and pretended to be a law enforcement officer, saying "Norman police."
In court documents, investigators said Mullin told his ex-girlfriend that he "wanted the victim dead."
Three children were in the back bedroom, and the terror only ended when Mullin quote, "passed out."
But, when police arrived Mullin took off, and lead them on a chase.
On body camera footage, the officer can be heard saying that Mullin was driving with his light blacked out.
Mullin's facing five charges, domestic violence strangulation, kidnapping, eluding, burglary and impersonating a police officer.
But this story is part of an alarming trend.
According to the Oklahoma attorney general's office, 32 women were killed by their male partners in 2017.
The state legislature is currently considering harsher punishments for domestic violence strangulation offenders.
A senator from Norman said, "strangulation victims are 750% more likely to be murdered than victims who've never been strangled."
Mullin’s bond is set at $75,000.
