A Quapaw man has been bound over for trial on first-degree rape charges.
Allen Richard Williams, 23, is back behind bars after being released from prison in April on unrelated charges. He now faces an additional five years for allegedly unlawfully entering a female acquaintance's home and sexually assaulting her.
According to court records, authorities responded to a home in the 300 block of Seneca Street at 5:48 a.m., June 21 where th resident told authorities she was awakened that morning with Williams attempting to engage in intercourse.
The victim allegedly told Williams to stop and he responded by saying "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,” law enforcement officer Gary Graham said. “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 reportedly awakened during the confrontation 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. When he returned them a few days later, she told him not to come back to her residence.
The court ordered Williams remanded to the Ottawa County Jail to await trial.
