The man accused of beating and attempting to rape a 33-year-old man in a Guymon motel on May 19, 2009 has been declared incompetent and has been committed to the state's forensic detention center.
As The Guymon Daily Herald first reported, Clifford G. Davis, 42 of Chickasha, Okla. is charged with attempted rape, robbery, aggravated assault and battery and kidnapping. At the time of his arrest, Davis also attempted to escape. As a result, he is also charged with escape from arrest or detention.
According to Davis' evaluation filed at the Texas County Court Clerk's Office, a staff psychiatrist with the Northwest Center for Behavioral Health believes Davis has a diagnosis of poly-substance dependence and an antisocial personality disorder.
"In summary, I find that Mr. Davis is not competent and is not able to assist his lawyer in his own defense. He reports having psychotic symptoms," read Davis's evaluation for competency.
The evaluation goes on to state that Davis claims to have no memory of the event leading to his incarceration.
Davis is now at the state's only impatient forensic facility, the Oklahoma Forensic Center, located in Vinita. There he will be treated until he becomes competent and he will then go to trial to face his charges.
According to an Affidavit for Probably Cause filed at the Texas County Court Clerk's Office, two guests arrived at Guymon's Executive Inn and checked into a room. One of the male guests went outside of his room and Davis, staying in a nearby room, invited him to come inside and drink a few alcoholic beverages and cigarettes. The man accepted and entered Davis' room.
Davis began talking about how he would like to obtain some crack cocaine. The conversation then turned violent as Davis allegedly began to punch the victim several times in the face and head. Davis held the victim in his room against his will and began to punch, kick and stomp him with his boots, the affidavit states.
After beating the victim, Davis allegedly attempted to rape the male victim but didn't end up doing so. Davis then demanded the victim's debit card and keys which were inside his vehicle.
Davis left the room and allegedly tied the victim's hands and legs behind his head with a telephone wire that he he had tore out of the motel's wall. He returned to the room after not being able to find the keys in the vehicle. Davis allegedly began to beat and stop the left side of the victim's head and back with his cowboy boots on.
The beating caused the victim to lose consciousness but when he woke up he noticed that Davis was asleep. The victim used that opportunity to escape to seek help.
Davis was arrested at the motel by police. While in custody, he escaped but later surrendered to Texas County deputies.
Davis's criminal background revealed that he had arrests dating back to November 3, 1994 and he was currently under a five year suspended sentence from the Grady County District Court where he was convicted of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
