A Creek County man is behind bars after deputies say he lured a 14-year-old boy into his home and raped him.

The victim’s mother said she and her son didn't know the man, and she's not sure why he did this to her child.

Creek County deputies arrested Herman Flick. He’s been charged with rape and forcible sodomy, kidnapping and two additional drug charges.

The incident happened in a mobile home park just north of Mannford, deputies say.

“It's a disturbing crime," Creek County sheriff, Les Vaughn said.

According to the arrest affidavit, the boy’s mother noticed her son was missing Sunday evening, so she called Mannford police to make a missing person report.

She said shortly after contacting them, her daughter started getting text messages from her son, begging for help.

The report says, when the teen finally came home, he told his mother what happened - claiming he was held at knifepoint, raped then given $15 and told not to tell anyone what happened.

Creek County investigators were eventually called out.

"The victim was able to tell us this is where it happened at, this is a good description, we had a good description of the suspect," Vaughn said.

Investigators arrested Flick just hours after the incident.

While the investigation is still on-going, deputies say there could be more victims.

Vaughn said, "If there are any other victims out there, by all means, they need to contact us and we need to get a report started."

The mother of the teen said she is not happy with the way Mannford police handled the case up until it was passed on to Creek County.

We contacted Mannford police but were not able to get a statement.
