An Oklahoma man who's allegedly been stalking a former co-worker for more than a month — sitting outside her home and leaving candy and food for her, according to police — is now accused of trying to kidnap her at gunpoint and shooting her husband.
The victim, who has not been named, was leaving her Tulsa home with her husband to head to work on Friday morning when they spotted Justin Arthur-Ray Davis sitting in a truck nearby, the Tulsa Police Department wrote in a press release.
“Davis exited the truck with a shotgun and ran after the couple,” police said. “The couple retreated to their apartment where Davis shot through the door hitting the husband in the hand. Davis went into the apartment and grabbed the victim dragging her down the stairs, assaulting her along the way.”
The chaos woke up neighbors, who called 911. At least one witness later told police that they watched Davis choke and punch his former co-worker.
“The husband then came back down stairs to save her and Davis points the shot gun at him saying he will kill him if she doesn’t get in the truck,” police wrote. “Davis then fires two shots into the air.”
Police arrived on the scene soon after, prompting Davis to flee. A pursuit ensued until Davis lost control of his vehicle. He was transported to a local hospital for a laceration to the head. He sports visible wounds to his face and head in his mugshot.
“Davis has been stalking the victim for over a month after he resigned at their mutual work place,” police said. “She has made reports of Davis sitting outside her apartment and leaving candy and food on her door step.”
Davis was booked into a Tulsa County jail on charges of kidnapping, shooting with intent to kill, and first-degree burglary, according to the police statement. It’s not clear if Davis has an attorney.
