Suspect in custody after manhunt
JOHNSTON COUNTY, Okla. (KTEN) — Robert Dee Humphrey, 39, has been taken into custody after leading Atoka and Johnston county deputies on a manhunt.
Johnston County Sheriff Gary Dodd said Humphrey was located at a house in Wapanucka on Wednesday evening.
Humphrey barricaded himself with a knife and was shot three times with less lethal munitions and taken into custody.
Atoka and Johnston County Sheriffs Offices and the Choctaw Tribal Police assisted.
Sheriff Dodd said Humphrey was wanted for felony charges including kidnapping, forcible sodomy, and aggravated assault and battery in connection with an alleged rape in Atoka County last week.
Humphrey was thought to be in Wapanucka on Tuesday. Deputies learned that Humphrey had run from a home near P Street.
Dodd said Humphrey had been jailed on drug possession charges in his jurisdiction, but was freed on bond.
"When he was arrested here, he was out on bond from Atoka County from a charge from last December where he had been charged with the rape of a 14-year-old girl," Dodd said.
Sheriff Dodd said a judge in Atoka County lowered Humphrey's bond for the December 2021 charge after his attorney requested a bond reduction.
"He was also supposed to be wearing an ankle monitor before he was released from Atoka County Jail, but the courts over there also failed to make sure that happened," Dodd explained.
