A Somali refugee? Why isn’t the media asking? In fact, only one media outlet covered the attack.
A man calling police Wednesday morning to report a sexual assault intervened in the ensuing assault between the alleged attacker and victim.
Abdulahi Yusus Guled, 39, allegedly exposed his genitals to a woman walking along Denver Avenue near 11th Street about 8:45 a.m., according to a probable cause affidavit. Guled was allegedly following her and exposed his genitals to the woman near a parking lot at 12th Street and Denver Avenue.
“A struggle ensued where Mr. Guled struck (the woman), resulting in her falling to the ground,” police state in the affidavit.
Guled allegedly lay on top of her after she was on the ground. A bystander, who was not identified in the police report, intervened and struck Guled in the head. The unidentified man reportedly detained Guled until police arrived.
Emergency responders transported Guled to a local hospital, where he was treated for a head laceration. He was then booked into Tulsa County jail on complaints of rape by instrumentation and indecent exposure. He is being held in lieu of a $27,000 bond. Guled’s initial appearance in court is scheduled for Oct. 17.
