Patrick McHenry

Ashton Clark
Patrick Wayne McHenry, 28, of Muskogee is charged in Muskogee County District Court with two felonies, kidnapping and rape, after an incident on Sept. 11 and 12 during which a Muskogee woman was allegedly confined, raped in the presence of McHenry’s girlfriend, Ashton Clark, 28, of Muskogee, then forced into the trunk of a car and taken to a residence in Braggs, where she was locked into a shed.

The victim told police McHenry had shot her in the shoulder, and medical workers found small pieces of metal consistent with gunshot, but she would not consent to their removal, so they couldn’t determine with certainty what they were.

Residents at the Braggs location told police that McHenry and Clark had brought the victim to the residence and locked her in the shed, which she escaped on the next afternoon.

McHenry has numerous prior felony convictions, including drugs, theft, evading police and possession of firearms after felony conviction. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
