Tulsa, Okla. - The man accused of raping a 13-year-old girl at Tulsa's Victory Christian Center in August in an attack which the church learned about, but failed to report for more than two weeks, confessed to the crime under police questioning.
Tulsa Police and sheriff's deputies have both confirmed that information, redacted in the arrest and booking report released by the David L. Moss Correctional Center, indicates Chris Denman did admit after being Mirandized that he had sexually assaulted the girl.
The 20-year-old Tulsa man was arrested Wednesday afternoon and booked on one complaint of first-degree rape and one complaint of forcible sodomy.
Denman's arrest and booking report tells us the girl was interviewed by police on August 31 and said Denman raped her in a "stairwell near the band room" on August 13th.
It goes on to say she first told "Victory leadership" about the rape on August 15.
The school did not notify the police, nor the girl's parents, until August 30, more than two weeks after learning of the attack.
The name of the building was listed at Victory Christian Center.
In the report, Denman is described as unemployed, but it indicates he was "formerly" employed by Victory Christian.
On his Facebook page, Denman indicates he's part of the staff at Camp Victory and that he studies at the Victory Bible Institute.
Also in the booking report, the girl said she disclosed the rape to "Victory leadership" on August 15th.
The report goes on to say that "Victory" notified the girl's mom and police more than two weeks later, on August 30th.
KRMG called Victory Christian several times Thursday and sent an e-mail trying to find out why it wasn't reported for two weeks.
Our calls have not been returned.
Our reporter then visited the facility in person.
After a brief stay he was given a printed statement which reads in full:
Due to the fact that there is an ongoing police investigation, we are unable to comment at this time, and ask that all questions be directed to the Tulsa Police Department. Thank you.
KRMG is not aware of any legal restrictions that would prevent Victory Christian from commenting.
