Teens allegedly assaulted during home invasion

A homeless man allegedly peeped through a window Friday on South Second Street while a teenage girl was dressing and allegedly fought her teenage boyfriend in the home.

Anthony Thomas, 29, was charged Monday with two felonies, assault with a dangerous weapon and burglary in the first degree, and two misdemeanors, peeping tom and assault and battery.

According to a police affidavit written by McAlester Patrol

Officer Mickey Virden, Thomas is alleged to have peeked through a window to watch the minor change clothes. When the girl saw him, she called for a boy, who has been identified in court documents as her boyfriend, to protect her.

Thomas allegedly challenged the boy to a fight, and when the boy went back inside the home, Thomas is alleged to have broken into the residence.

Allegedly, when Thomas made his way inside, he found another minor and grabbed the person around the neck. The boyfriend was able to fight Thomas off the minor, the police affidavit said.

After the minor was reportedly released, the affidavit stated Thomas picked up a child’s scooter and swung it at two of the minors.

According to Virden, when Thomas was located at the Boys and Girls Club Park at 305 E Chadick Ave., he had a cut above his right eye. Thomas allegedly said that the minors started the altercation.

Thomas could face up to 31 years and 90 days in prison for the four counts if convicted.

He could also face a $6,000 fine if convicted.
