Prosecutors have filed felony charges against a Guthrie man accused of sexually assaulting a University of Central Oklahoma student.

Elvis J. Perkins, 33, was arrested Friday by the Oklahoma County sheriff's warrant team in connection with a campus sexual assault, sheriff's office spokesman Mark Myers said.

Oklahoma County prosecutors filed sexual battery charges against Perkins Oct. 9, filing records show.

He was being held Tuesday in the Oklahoma County jail in lieu of $5,000 bail.

Perkins is accused of sexually assaulting an 18-year-old male UCO student about 2 p.m. Sept. 23. According to an alert sent to UCO students on Sept. 26, the victim met the suspect in a common area in Murdaugh Hall, a men's dormitory, and then went into a dorm room, where the incident took place.

The notice described the man as a light-skinned black male in his early 30s. The man was about 5 feet 8 inches tall and between 160 and 180 pounds, with a shaved head and thin mustache and beard, according to the notice.

The man used the first name Marcus, and the name “Perkins” was tattooed on his left forearm, according to the notice.

UCO had two forcible sexual offenses in 2010, the most recent year for which records are available, according to data collected under the federal 1990 Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

The campus saw two such offenses in 2009, and one in 2008.
