Tulsa Man Arrested For An Alleged Kidnapping And Rape

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Police arrest a Tulsa man Tuesday for the alleged kidnapping and rape of a 34-year-old woman in June.

He is identified as 38-year-old Jesse Dean Redfearn.

Police say Redfearn's arrest came as a result of an investigation after officers found the victim bound, gagged and a bandana over her face in the 6000 block of South 129th East Avenue on June 19th.

According to police, the victim said she had drank a large amount of whiskey and only remembered a hood being placed over her head while she walked across a parking lot near Admiral Place and Sheridan.

Investigators say the victim was taken to an unknown location and remembers waking up naked and bound with her head covered so she couldn’t see. When she started screaming the suspect told her to shut up.

After the sexual assault, police say the Redfearn allegedly drove the victim to where she was eventually found by police officers.

Police say a hospital exam revealed injuries consistent with sexual assault.

Investigators say the rope, bandanas, belt, and hood that were left on the victim were tested for DNA.  The results matched a person already in the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation's database, identified as Jesse Redfearn.

Redfearn was arrested and booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints including rape and kidnapping.

Jail records show Jesse Dean Redfearn has a court appearance set for July 17th.
