An Oklahoma City police officer accused of raping and groping several women while on duty on the city’s northeast side was charged Friday with 16 felonies.

Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, of Oklahoma City, is charged in Oklahoma County District Court with two counts of first-degree rape, four counts of sexual battery, four counts of forcible oral sodomy, four counts of indecent exposure, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of stalking.

Holtzclaw is accused of stopping women — some as they walked through neighborhoods — and threatening them with arrest. Holtzclaw reportedly forced women to expose themselves, fondled the women, forced four of them to perform oral sex on him and had intercourse with at least two of the women, court records show.

He also is accused of going into a home on March 25 without consent or a warrant, waking a man sleeping in a back bedroom of the home and forcing him to go outside the home, according to probable cause affidavits filed Friday. Holtzclaw was looking for the man’s girlfriend who lived there but was not home at the time, records show.

Holtzclaw, a three-year police veteran and Enid native, was placed on administrative leave on June 18, the day he was accused of the crimes.
