An attempted rape charge was filed Wednesday against a Tulsa man who is accused of assaulting a sandwich shop employee.
Norman Fitzgerald Williams, 20, is charged with one count of attempted first-degree rape, Tulsa County District Court filings show.
Prosecutors allege that Williams entered the Subway at 6161 S. 33rd West Ave. about 8:45 p.m. Nov. 19 while the restaurant had no customers and grabbed a female employee behind the counter.
The woman told police that her assailant groped her before instructing her to bend over and saying he wanted to have sex with her.
The woman said she refused and told him the restaurant had surveillance cameras. The man then released her and kissed her shoes, police said.
Williams was arrested short time later at Love Heals Church, 3306 W. 21st St., police said.
During interviews with detectives, Williams said he had been watching pornography earlier that day and had walked by the restaurant, where he saw the woman alone.
He remains in the Tulsa Jail with bail set at $50,000.
