Investigation into assault at church uncovers similar attack

| April 10, 2014

The Tulsa police investigation into a female church employee attacked nearly a week ago has not yet turned up a suspect, Sex Crimes Division Sgt. Mark Mears said.

But it did turn up a similar case that had occurred nearby in late March.

Mears said the department has received only a few Crime Stoppers tips since police released images April 1 of a man who attacked a woman that morning at Adventist Fellowship Church, in the 15300 block of East 21st St.

The victim said she went into the church at 9:45 a.m. when a male approached her, then grabbed her as she turned around. She told police he dragged her into an adjacent room and attempted to sexually assault her.

The woman screamed for help and the man, who Mears said was identified as being thin, muscular, about 5 feet 8 inches tall and about 170 pounds with dark hair, ran away. He was said to have been wearing blue jeans and a short-sleeved blue shirt during the attack.

Mears said they were contacted by a different woman, who said she had been assaulted March 24, while in the parking lot of Plainview Baptist Church, located at 14531 E. 21st St., just west of Adventist Fellowship.
