OSBI releases sketch of rape suspect

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has released a sketch of the man who raped and beat an 84-year-old Altus woman this past Wednesday in her home, leaving her with several broken bones.

Jackson County Sheriff Roger Levick said the attack happened at approximately 10 p.m. on Wednesday evening in the Heritage Estates area.

“The victim heard a knock at the door, and thought it was a neighbor,” said Levick. “But when she realized it wasn’t someone she knew, she tried to shut the door, but the man forced his way in,” added Levick.

Levick said that this was not part of a burglary, and that no items were taken from the home. “This woman was targeted,” said Levick. “No other neighbors reported anyone knocking at their doors, or any other similar activity.”

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation finished up the crime scene on Friday afternoon, and a forensic sketch artist was being brought in from OSBI to work with the victim in producing the sketch seen here. The Drug Task Force has also been asked to assist with the investigation.

The victim told investigators her attacker was a white man in his mid to late thirties, about 5’7” and weighs about 160 pounds. He has bluish eyes and light sandy brown curly hair. He was wearing light-brown, plastic, round-framed glasses and has a small tattoo on his right shoulder.

He drove away in a newer, two-door, white or cream-colored short bed pickup.

Levick added that the man will have a very severe bite mark on his right forearm between the wrist and elbow where the victim bit him.
