An 18-year-old Tulsa man is charged with child sexual abuse after a girl told police he sexually assaulted her starting when she was 7 years old. 

William Norfleet was arrested Wednesday, September 13, in Rogers County where police say he's a nursing student at Rogers State University.

Police say they became aware of the abuse in July 2017, when the now 13-year-old girl told a relative. An affidavit says the girl told officers she and Norfleet first had sexual contact during a truth or dare game then he had sexually assaulted her on a regular basis.

Investigators said the girl was "very detailed in her disclosure" and told them the contact took place about twice a month. 

The affidavit states Norfleet was interviewed by a child crisis detective and he denied most of what the girl said. He told police he and the girl had regular conversations of a sexual nature, and that she had performed oral sex on him twice, the affidavit said.

During a break in the interview, police said Norfleet sent a text message to his mother.

Detectives got a search warrant for his cell phone and quoted what they said was contained in the message in the affidavit of probable cause. Norfleet reportedly apologized to his mother but denied many of the girl's claims, saying she requested sex and blackmailed him for years, records show.

He was arrested in Rogers County Wednesday, September 13, and will be transferred to Tulsa County where police say the crimes took place.
