New developments to report in the case of a Tulsa World newspaper deliveryman arrested last week on charges of trying to strangle a woman to death.

A second woman has come forward who had an encounter with the suspect. Tulsa Police say 64-year-old Paul Williford didn't deliver the victim's newspaper on purpose last Friday. When he brought it by later, she says Williford talked his way inside then strangled her until she passed out.

Tulsa Police say he also sexually assaulted her before being interrupted by the victim's granddaughter.

An 84-year-old woman says Williford is also her newspaper deliveryman and she also had to call him when she didn't receive a paper a few months ago. She says he stepped inside her home and grabbed her breasts. She says she didn't report it at the time because she was afraid of him.

Williford remains in the Tulsa County jail.
