Police have arrested a Tulsa man after a woman reported he had held her against her will for a week, repeatedly beating and sexually assaulting her.
Jeremy Wesley Harp, 23, faces numerous felony complaints, including first-degree rape, forcible sodomy, domestic assault and battery, and kidnapping -- and according to court records, this is not the first time he has attacked a woman.
KRMG has obtained court documents which indicate Harp had forced his girlfriend to leave a friend's home against her will, had beaten her, broken her cell phone so she could not call police, and held her for more than 24 hours.
That incident occurred in June. The victim in that case identified herself to detectives as Harp's girlfriend, and says she has a child with him and was pregnant at the time of the attack.
A TPD warrants squad arrested Harp on warrants stemming from that incident on Oct. 2, and questioned him about the attack on a second victim.
She claims Harp called her Sept. 22 and told her he was "coming to get her, and if she didn't come out he was going to kick her friend's door in," according to an arrest and booking report filed by a detective.
The victim says he took her to a house belonging to a friend of his, where he held her for a week, beating and sexually assaulting her repeatedly.
The report indicates he eventually allowed her to go to an emergency room, but stayed with her at all times so she couldn't tell anyone what had actually happened to her.
She managed to escape on Sept. 29 and made it to a friend's home, then called police.
When questioned, Harp denied all wrongdoing, saying that to his knowledge the second victim had gone out for a walk and when she returned, had been beaten by persons unknown.
He remains jailed on bonds totaling $148,750.
He has prior convictions including possession of a stolen vehicle, eluding police, and second-degree burglary according to the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
