Additional charges have been filed against an Oklahoma City police officer and Enid native accused of sexually assaulting women he encountered while on patrol.
Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, was charged today with 10 more felonies alleging crimes against two additional victims.
Prosecutors filed an amended information today, including charges of first- and second-degree rape, four counts of sexual battery, two counts of forcible oral sodomy and counts of procuring lewd exhibition and indecent exposure.
According to new court documents, Oklahoma City Police were contacted Sept. 19 by a 22-year-old woman who said she was sexually assaulted by Holtzclaw.
The woman told detectives she was arrested Dec. 20, 2013, by Holtzclaw and taken to a treatment center for her drug use. The woman said Holtzclaw fondled her breasts, forced her to sodomize him and placed his hand between her legs, according to the documents.
The woman also told detectives Holtzclaw visited where she was living Jan. 9, 2014, in his personal vehicle. She said Holtzclaw asked her for sex after speaking to her about her charges. She said when she declined, Holtzclaw exposed himself and requested oral sex, according to the documents. The woman said she denied both his requests.
The woman said she was afraid to come forward in the beginning because of the charges against her. The woman also said she thought no one would believe her over an officer.
OKCPD was contacted Sept. 16, by a probation and parole officer stating he had an offender in his office disclosing she had been sexually assaulted by an officer.
That woman told detectives she was walking home late one night and was stopped by an officer. She said the officer insisted on giving her a ride home and instead drove to a vacant school and parked between two buildings.
The woman said the officer came to her door and forced her to perform oral sex on him, according to the documents. She said the officer also forced her to show him her breasts and also fondled her during the incident.
The woman said the officer then made her bend over so he could search her. She said he then had sex with her for five to 10 minutes, according to the documents.
The woman told detectives she saw the news about an officer being charged and it was the one who attacked her, but she did not name him, according to the documents.
Detectives took four buccal swabs from the woman and were compared to a DNA profile on Holtzclaw’s pants, but they did not match.
Holtzclaw was arrested in August following a months-long investigation by Oklahoma City police following a complaint from one of his alleged victims.
Prosecutors filed 16 felony charges against Holtzclaw in late August, including four counts of forcible oral sodomy, two counts of first-degree rape, four counts of sexual battery, four counts of indecent exposure, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of stalking. Those charges allege there are eight victims.
Oklahoma City Police Chief Bill Citty said during a press conference announcing the arrest in August that Holtzclaw was hired in September 2011 and worked the 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. shift for the department’s Springlake Division, patrolling an area north and east of the state Capitol. He was placed on administrative leave in June following receipt of a complaint from one of the alleged victims.
“Oklahoma City Police started an investigation back in June 18 after it received a complaint from a lady who said she’s been stopped by an Oklahoma City police officer and had been forced to perform oral sodomy on that officer,” Citty said at a press conference announcing Holtzclaw’s arrest. “The officer was placed on administrative leave that morning, on June 18, and was taken off duty on June 18.”
Scott Adams, the Holtzclaw family’s attorney, previously said Holtzclaw intends to fight the charges and “vehemently denies” them.
Holtzclaw posted a $500,000 cash bond Sept. 9 and was placed on an ankle monitor and under house arrest. He has been staying with his parents in Enid since.
