A 23-year-old Commerce man has been charged with raping a female acquaintance.
Allen Richard Williams was released from prison in April and now faces an additional five years for allegedly entering the victim's home unlawfully and sexually assaulting her.
According to court records, authorities responded to a home in the 300 block of Seneca at 5:48 a.m., June 21. The resident told authorities she was awakened that morning with Williams on top of her having sexual intercourse.
The victim allegedly told Williams to stop and he responded “shh, it's okay.”
The woman told authorities that her toddler daughter was in bed with her at the time of the assault.
“The victim said a teenage male knocked on the window and asked what was going on during the assault,” said law enforcement officer Gary Graham. “Williams told him to leave.”
According to the victim's statement, when she told Williams she was calling the police he got up and put his clothes on.
The victim's sons were allegedly awakened and they chased the man from the house.
The victim said she met Williams a few weeks earlier and at that time he had taken her cell phone and car keys and, when he returned them a few days later, she told him not to come back to her residence.
Graham said foot tracks in the dew led from the victim's bedroom window to two different residences on Cayuga Street.
“At approximately 11:30 a.m. I observed two male subjects walking east on Fourth Street next to the Bank of Quapaw,” Graham said. “The subjects I recognized as being Williams and the juvenile suspect at the window.”
After speaking with both subjects, Williams was taken into custody for burglary and second-degree rape.
