(TULSA, Okla.) On 12-13-2020, Tulsa Police Officers responded to a report of a home invasion and sexual assault near the campus of TU. The victim reported that she was woken up by an unknown male that threatened to kill her if she said anything. The suspect attempted to sexually assault the victim, but she was able to bite him and scream, which woke the other occupants of the house and caused the suspect to flee. Surveillance video in the area showed the suspect enter the residence before running out the front door approximately 40 minutes later. The investigation showed that the victim had been stalked by the suspect for at least 3 days prior to the home invasion. On 12-15-2020, another victim was located in south Tulsa that reported home break-in by a similar suspect. Detectives were able to recover video surveillance that showed the same suspect repeatedly stalking the victim in this case over the course of approximately 5 weeks. A task force that consisted of the Special Victims Unit, Special Investigations Division, Fugitive Warrants Unit, and Intel Analysts were ultimately able to identify a suspect in this series of crimes. On 12-23-2020, a search warrant was served at the residence of Jesse Thomas Moore.  Moore was placed under arrest and booked on charges of Attempted Rape, First Degree Burglary, Stalking, and Peeping Tom.
