Oklahoma City House Turned Into A "House Of Horrors" To Target Gay Men
An Oklahoma City house became a “house of horrors” after it was used as the location for torturing gay men.
According to KFOR, several gay men were tricked, through Grindr invites, into showing up to an Oklahoma City house. The men thought they were arriving for a hookup, but instead found themselves victims of a crime.
Each man arrived at the house in 15 minute increments. After showing up, they were tied up and robbed at gunpoint. Afterwards, they were told to lie on the dirty ground.
The police first became suspicious of the crime when they received several calls about the area on S.W. 24th and Harvey.
When police set out to investigate the location, they discovered that the inside of the house was covered in trash.
In addition, the body camera footage, which can be watched below, shows the police discovering a backpack next to a chair. One victim later said that spot was where he was robbed at gunpoint.
Thankfully, none of the men were harmed. At one point, a victim tried to make a run for it. While he was later caught by the robbers, his distraction helped the other hostages escape and call the police.
So far, the authorities have been able to arrest one suspect, 31-year-old Deaunte McPherson. He has been charged with robbery with a firearm and kidnappings.
Unfortunately, the police are still looking for the other accomplices. Authorities are on the lookout for two men and one woman.
