Victor Hursh

Tulsa County prosecutors filed several more charges on Tuesday against a man suspected of drugging, raping and holding three women against their will at separate times in his home.

Victor Willard Hursh, 60, of Tulsa, is charged with 12 crimes: two counts of first-degree rape, four counts of second-degree rape, two counts of forcible sodomy, three counts of kidnapping, and one count of possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony.

Hursh is being held without bond in the Tulsa Jail pending a review hearing on an emergency protective order, according to online court minutes.

Prosecutors initially charged Hursh on Thursday with six of the crimes related to a 22-year-old woman whom investigators allege he drugged, raped and held hostage for 2½ months ending Aug. 30.

The latest charges involve two other woman and allegedly occurred on two separate days — one in June 2015 and the other in January 2016.

The affidavit alleges each of Hursh’s attacks were similar because each victim reported being forced to use meth, were raped and sodomized in various ways and held against their will in his home.

Regarding the original six charges, the victim told police that she met Hursh at a store at 15th Street and Lewis Avenue in June, and Hursh told her she could stay at his home because she was a transient, according to a probable cause affidavit. She reported that Hursh became angry when she declined his offer to smoke methamphetamine and began punching her, which started a period in which he held her hostage in his bedroom.

Hursh would inject the woman with meth every two to three days and force her to engage in a variety of sexual activities, according to the affidavit. The woman additionally said Hursh forced her to remain naked and regularly threatened her by pointing a gun at her and saying he would kill some of her family members.

The woman said she managed to escape when Hursh forced her to go with him to a convenience store at Fifth Street and Sheridan Road.
