TULSA, OK - A Tulsa man is behind bars, accused of holding captive his 63-year-old girlfriend and her 89-year old mother.  He allegedly beat them for days.

Tulsa Police say the women checked into a hotel near 41st and Memorial on Sunday.  Three days later, they say the 63-year-old woman called 911 for help.  

Police say in addition to being held hostage and severely beaten, one of the women claims they were also being drugged.

"If you had seen the victims of this. It's pretty sad what happened, what occurred here the last three or four days," said Tulsa Police Corporal C.J. Jackson.

Tulsa Police say Kevin Simmons has been exploiting the women for money.  They say he's been driving the victim's car which was filled with drugs and merchandise bought with the victim's credit card.

The women are being treated at a Tulsa hospital.
