Police arrested a TU student accused of raping a student in an on-campus apartment.

Police said TU suspended Luis Molina late last week, told him to move out and that's when his father flew in from Mexico and the two headed south. 

He was captured in San Antonio.

Luis Molina's lived in the same complex where the other incidents happened, including the rape. 

Now, police didn't know about the rape until they got a search warrant for this apartment and they said they found his cell phone and on also a video of the rape on the cell phone. 

In the video, the victim was unconscious and never even knew it happened.

"It was  horrifying," said Sgt. Jillian Phippen with TPD Sex Crimes. 

Tulsa Police suspect the victim was drugged. They began investigating crimes in the on-campus apartment complex in February after women said they woke up to find an intruder in their bedrooms, but saw only a silhouette.

Police said all seven incidents were between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. and he always got in through unlocked doors.

In two cases, he touched the women.

All the victims are current or former athletes or roommates of an athlete.

"Lot of students, we trust each other and so, we don't lock our apartments all the time because we're in such a rush to go from point A to point B," said student Dylan Wolle. 

He said the school sent out several emails warning students to lock their doors and he'd seen campus security doing extra patrols.

"Emails going around multiple times, I was keeping my door locked, of course, but knowing he's right on my floor, 10 feet away, it blows my mind, really blows my mind," said Bishop Louie. 

Police Officers said a victim on October 7 was finally able to give them a description and with the help of technology, they identified Luis Molina as the suspect.  

Detectives said he refused to answer questions but denied any knowledge of the crimes, then he and his father made a run for the border before he was captured in San Antonio.

Molina will be held in San Antonio until he's brought back to Tulsa to face the rape charge.
