OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police have arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting several women in northeast Oklahoma City.

William Tyson Horton faced charges of sexual battery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and forcible sodomy.  Horton was the suspect in at least four sexual assaults on women. 

Most of the assaults took place in the vicinity of Reno Avenue and Martin Luther King Avenue.

Police said in all of the cases, Horton offered a ride to the victims.  Investigators said he then drove them to a secluded area, produced a knife and threatened them with violence if they didn't perform sexual acts on him.  Some of the victims were injured, but all of them were able to get away.
