Guymon Man Behind Bars Facing Rape Charges

Joe Denoyer - October 14, 2016 8:59 pm

A man is behind bars facing two counts of first degree rape charges and a kidnapping charge in Texas County, according to court documents.

Twenty-one-year-old Tomas Tino-Lorenzo is accused of forcing a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him.

The Guymon Daily Herald said a police officer was sent to a Guymon residence on a juvenile runaway in the afternoon of October 10. The officer was told police were recently at the property earlier on a welfare check concerning a girl who missed two days of school.

The mother of the girl told police her daughter was missing, but she wasn’t aware she hadn’t made it to school until speaking to police.

Tino-Lorenzo was contacted by police after the mother said her daughter had been dating him. He told authorities they hadn’t been together for about two months, and he didn’t know where to find her.

The affidavit said police learned the girl was home, needed help and was in “bad condition.” It also stated the girl told an officer Tino-Lorenzo had hurt her, and she was taken to a hospital for treatment and rape exam.

Police were told by the girl that she was at a school bus stop when Tino-Lorenzo stopped her and wanted to to speak to her. She said he grabbed her wrist after she refused.

She said he again told her he needed to speak to her and he would take her to school. He walked her to the car and would not let her do or call anyone, according to the girl.

She said he took her to Sunset Lake where he forced her to have sex with him in the car. According to the affidavit, the girl said that was the second time he forced her to have sex. The first time was in the parking lot of the Victoria Market.

Tino-Lorenzo was detained for question and later arrested for two counts of first degree rape with bail set at $250,000. It was revealed he was not in the United States legally and is originally from Guatemala.
