A man captured in early October by Ponca City Police is facing multiple charges in Kay County and Oklahoma County.

Bobby Dean Anderson, 59, of McAlester, was charged Oct. 12 in Kay County on these complaints:

  • Endangering others while eluding or attempting to elude a police after after two or more felony convictions, a felony;
  • Unauthorized use of a vehicle, after two or more felony convictions, a felony;
  • Possession of a controlled dangerous substance, marijuana, a misdemeanor
  • Obstructing an officer, a misdemeanor
  • Driving with a suspended license, a misdemeanor.

He is being held in the Kay County Detention Center in lieu of a $100,000 bond on the Kay County charges. An attorney status review docket is set for Nov. 3.

On Tuesday, felony charges were filed against Anderson in Oklahoma County in connection with an assault on a woman there and the theft of her car. Anderson was located with the car by officers in Ponca City. An Oklahoma County judge issued an arrest warrant for Anderson on Wednesday.

An Oklahoma County judge has set bond there at $140,000.

According to an affidavit filed in the Oklahoma County case, a woman saw an older man pushing shopping carts in the Belle Isle Wal-Mart parking lot, on the afternoon of October 2. Police said he was posing as an employee and walked to the victim’s vehicle.

She got into the driver seat and before she could shut the door, according to the affidavit, said the man “forced her door open and immediately began punching her in the mouth and head, threatening to kill her.”

She managed to make it out of the car and the suspect took off. Investigators reviewed footage of the incident captured on surveillance cameras.

The next day, the victim’s library card reportedly turned up in Ponca City. The affidavit said police officers in Ponca City found 59-year-old Bobby Dean Anderson within an hour. The affidavit said he was wearing the same clothes from the attack, seen walking out of a Hobby Lobby and getting into the stolen car.

He led officers on a chase for several miles before crashing into a bean field, police said.

Anderson was  convicted of a rape charge filed in 1991 in Pittsburg County. Several other charges are pending in Pittsburg County from 2016 and 2017.
