A Tulsa man was arrested late Saturday for assault after police say he strongly objected to someone visiting his 16-year-old daughter.

Jermaine Clemons, 35, is being held on a $25,000 bond.

According to an arrest report, an unnamed adult male showed up at Clemons' house at about 11:40 p.m. January 11 to talk to the teenage girl.

"Jermaine watched (name redacted by police) enter his house in hopes to meet 16-year-old daughter, and Jermaine came in behind him and hit (name redacted by police) three to five times with his right hand with metal brass knuckles on his right hand," the arresting officer said in his report.

The visiting male was taken to the hospital with numerous lacerations, according to Captain Steve Odom with the Tulsa Police Department.

"There were allegations that this adult was sending some inappropriate texts to Mr. Clemons' 16-year-old daughter," Odom said Sunday. He believes the department's sex crimes division will be following up on the case.

Clemons was booked on a complaint of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
