BLAINE COUNTY, Okla. – Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) is offering two separate $7,500 rewards for information that leads agents to the person responsible for two home invasions that occurred in Blaine County in the fall of 2019.

On October 13, 2019, the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance with the assault and armed robbery of an 82-year-old man. The man was assaulted, robbed and his home on 4th Street in Watonga was burglarized. He was taken to a local hospital and treated for his injuries. The victim’s vehicle was also stolen; however it was later recovered by law enforcement.

Just over a month later, on November 17, 2019, the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance after a second home invasion. An unknown male forced his way into the home of a 78-year-old female who lived off of Airport Road in Watonga. The woman was raped by the suspect who then stole several items from her home.

The suspect in both cases is described as a stocky black man, between 30-35 years old and wearing dark clothing. OSBI agents believes both cases are connected.

If you have any information about either case, contact the OSBI at (800) 522-8017 or [email protected]. YOU CAN REMAIN ANONYMOUS.
