A cigarette burn helped uncover allegations of sexual abuse against a 44-year-old man in Oklahoma City.

A woman called police on August 2, saying an 11-year-old girl told her she'd been sexually assaulted by Tyrone Chappell. The girl first showed the woman a burn on her arm. When asked how she received the burn, the girl said Chappell dropped his cigarette on her while he was assaulting her.

The girl told police the abuse started in April. She said Chappell would come to her bedroom at night, and over the next few months, the abuse rapidly progressed.

Police arrested Chappell and booked into the Oklahoma County jail.
