SKIATOOK, Okla. — A Skiatook man was arrested on an accusation of first-degree rape after police say he sexually assaulted an intellectually disabled girl while she was walking home.
The incident happened last week in a field in Skiatook.
The girl, who is a juvenile, told her mother that Tylon Walsh, 18, assaulted her while he was escorting her home.
The girl said that while they were walking home, Walsh started to kiss her and removed her clothes. The girl said she "froze" out of fear, according to the police report. Documents said the girl had bruising on her arms and thighs after the incident.
Police said the girl suffers from a diagnosed panic disorder and had significant intellectual disabilities.
Documents went on to say that Walsh had sex with the girl despite her saying no, and told the girl her not to tell anyone "or else."
During an interview with police, Walsh admitted to having sex with the girl, but he said it was consensual.
Walsh was arrested on a count of first-degree rape. He also faces a count of obstruction after police said he lied about his age.
