A 16-year-old Delaware County boy accused of raping and stabbing a teenage girl 20 times last month remains in the Tulsa County jail held on $200,000 bail.
Keighton Budder, of Kansas, Okla., is charged as a youthful offender in Delaware County District Court in Jay with first-degree rape and assault and battery with a deadly weapon. He appeared in court on Thursday where he requested a court-appointed attorney.
Budder is accused of raping a 17-year-old girl and stabbing her multiple times in the neck, upper and lower body on a rural Colcord road on Aug. 11, according to court documents.
The victim was flown by helicopter to St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa, where she underwent surgery for 20 stab wounds, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Mike Green, Colcord police chief said the victim and since been released and Budder is being held in Tulsa because of his juvenile status.
Authorities learned of the assault after an intoxicated Budder passed out and the victim, who was wearing no clothes, was able to escape and sought help from a nearby residence.
The woman living in the house called law enforcement.
When officers arrived at the scene, Budder was covered with blood, wearing a white shirt with his underwear and pants down around his ankles.
He had also been hit with a tire tool on his head by the victim’s brother after he learned of the assault on his sister, the affidavit states.
Earlier in the evening the victim had invited a few friends over for a party. Beer was present at the residence.
Budder and three other friends arrived at the party two hours later and brought in a 30-pack case of beer. The victim told police she had “a few beers” during the party.
Investigators declined to answer questions about who supplied the beer at the residence or how the three teenagers were in possession of a 30-pack case of beer, saying the case is still under investigation. Green did say there were adults present at the party.
Around 3 a.m., the victim drove some of the guests home, including Budder, who was suppose to get out with a friend, but became the last passenger to be dropped off.
During the drive, Budder allegedly started stabbing the victim. When she attempted to flee her vehicle, Budder grabbed her and allegedly pounded her face into the ground and onto the rocks, the affidavit states.
During the attack, Budder’s knife broke, leaving him to hit the victim in the face numerous times with his fist and then allegedly raped her, authorities said.Green said there were four reported cases of rape in the Colcord area since October and they all involve females under the age of 21.
Budder is not a suspect in the other cases, he said.
