TULSA, Okla. — A Tulsa man is facing charges in connection to two home invasions and attempted sexual assaults, according to the United States Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

18-year-old Jesse Moore was charged with attempted sexual contact and first degree burglary

“Jesse Moore is alleged to have looked into two victims’ windows and then entered their homes, in one incident attempting to sexually assault a young woman,” said U.S. Attorney Trent Shores. “The defendant is a danger to the Tulsa community. I am thankful for the Tulsa Police Department’s thorough investigative work and quick action to take Moore off our streets.”

On Dec. 13, Tulsa police said officers responded to a reported home invasion and sexual assault near the campus of the University of Tulsa.

The victim told officers she was woken up by an unknown man that threatened to kill her if she said anything, police said. The suspect attempted to sexually assault the victim, but police said she was able to bite him and scream, and the suspect ran away.

Surveillance video in the area showed the suspect enter the residence before running out the front door approximately 40 minutes later, according to police. Police said the suspect stalked the victim for at least three days before the home invasion.

On Dec. 15, police said another victim located in south Tulsa reported a home break-in by a similar suspect. Surveillance showed the same suspect repeatedly stalking the victim for five weeks.

Moore’s detention hearing is set for Wednesday, Dec. 30, at 1 p.m.
