Detectives arrested 29-year-old Kyle Hancock Saturday on one count of first-degree burglary and one count of first-degree rape following an alleged rape of a 5-year-old.

Early Saturday morning, a mother was asleep on a couch in her residence when she was wakened by a noise.

The mother searched her 5-year-old daughter's bedroom, but did not find her there.

She then went to another room and found an unknown man on top of her daughter, raping her.

The mother tried to detain the man, and he then fled, diving out of the kitchen window, police said. The kitchen window is also how police believe the man entered the home.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:30 a.m.

"She didn't indicate that she recognized him at all. So right now we are classifying it as a stranger rape," said Sgt. Robert Rohloff with the Tulsa Police Department.

"This is scary. This ranks right up there with the abduction of the child off the playground that we had a couple of weeks ago. You have somebody who is going to break into a house that is occupied and then attack a child. Yes, this is bad," Sgt. Rohloff said.

The suspect was booked downtown Saturday evening. Officials said a mother who saw a story of the sexual assault on the news alerted police because she knew his history as a sex offender and knew he lived in the area. Officers located Hancock and made an arrest due to a separate outstanding warrant from Creek county.

According to the police report, Hancock told a male witness "I have a demon in me."

Hancock is being held without bond.
