Courtney “B J” Randolph, 35, has been arrested on charges of kidnapping; forcible sodomy, three counts; punishment for first degree rape; threatening to perform an act of violence; violation of ex parte or final protective order; breaking and entering; and operating a motor vehicle without a license.
According to reports from the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, a warrant was issued for Randolph’s arrest after an incident that happened in January of this year near Eldorado. He was arrested and brought to the Jackson County Jail on Thursday.
According to reports, Randolph already had eight active outstanding Misdemeanor Warrants out against him, as well as two active Felony Warrants for his arrest in three counties in Oklahoma and one county in Texas. However, Randolph was arrested this week in connection with an incident in which he has been accused of keeping a 17-year-old female against her will, and sexually assaulting her.
In the reports, it said that Randolph was a family friend, and that the girl didn’t fear being with the man, but during a trip to a local convenience store, Randolph became abusive and sexually violent. After the incident occurred, the girl said that Randolph returned her to the place where she was living. He reportedly told that the girl that if she told anyone, he would cut her throat.
The police were called, and the girl was taken to the hospital for examination. In the time after the incident, Randolph led Eldorado authorities on a high speed chase, both through town and in the country where he eventually lost them.
Reports stated that Randolph had fled to Kansas the night of the alleged assault to avoid capture. A phone number was provided for the suspect, and authorities contacted him. Randolph told officers by phone that he fled due to the outstanding warrants and for no other reason. He further said that it would take him nine hours to return to Altus, but he would return to talk with them about the events of the previous evening.
The next morning, Randolph called the dispatcher at the Sheriff’s Office and said he had changed his mind about turning himself in and would be hiring a lawyer.
