TULSA - A former University of Tulsa student charged with multiple counts ranging from burglary to rape is charged with two new counts - blackmail and peeping tom, according to court records.
 
Luis Molina, a 19-year-old student from Mexico on a student visa, already faced 22 counts: rape by instrumentation, four counts of sexual battery, eight counts of peeping tom (including one using electronic photographic equipment), seven counts of first degree burglary, larceny and attempted rape in the first degree.
 
Tulsa police say they started investigating Molina in February when a woman in a campus apartment reported waking to a stranger in her bedroom, touching her buttocks. In the months following the February attack, the university sent out a series of alerts notifying students of an intruder entering campus apartments through unlocked doors.
 
Students have expressed concern over how the university communicated with them about the incidents. At a recent forum that included a panel of sexual assault experts, about 50 students questioned administrators about why their alerts excluded language about sexual misconduct.
 
Molina was arrested in San Antonio, Texas on October 22, reportedly trying to flee to Mexico. University officials sent an email alert on October 24 to students and staff, saying administrators had been working with Tulsa police detectives for months on the investigation, which included cases where victims reported sexual crimes.
