Tulsa Police: Four In Custody, Possibly Involved In Home Invasion, Sexual Assault
TULSA, Oklahoma - Police said they've arrested four men who may be connected to a south Tulsa home invasion where a woman was sexually assaulted early Thursday.
Maurece Younger, 18, was arrested for first-degree rape and six counts of armed robbery. Three others were arrested for six counts of armed robbery -- Sahsun Mack, 18, James Jones, 25, and Keshon Ledbetter, 17.
Officers said they were called to the YaleTowne Apartments in the 7100 block of South Granite Avenue at about 2:30 a.m.
They say the armed men kicked in the door of an apartment, finding two men and a woman inside. Police said the men sexually assaulted the woman, then stole three big screen TVs.
Officers said the two men inside the apartment were not injured, but the woman was taken to the hospital to be checked out.
The four men may also be connected to two other overnight armed robberies, according to police. One happened near 51st and Hudson and another near East 21st and 129th East Avenue.
Due to the similarities with that crime, they also questioned the men about the robbery and assault at YaleTowne.
"Having a handgun, committing armed robberies, being in the area of the other armed robberies so that's why they're questioning them in relation to this," said Tulsa Police officer Jeanne Mackenzie.
