Campus police coronadoA Coronado Hall resident was arrested Jan. 28 for second-degree rape.

According to Woods County Distrcit Court documents, Alejandro Martinez, 18, a Northwestern freshman, engaged in sexual activity with a 13 year-old middle school girl while in his dormitory room in Coronado Hall.

The following day the girl informed an Alva Public Schools teacher and counselor that she had been sexually assaulted.

The two met via a social media site called “Meet Me,” court documents said.  On Jan. 26, Martinez contacted the girl. Martinez began to send her sexually explicit text messages. He soon suggested that the two should meet.

The girl reported that the two met at approximately 3:15 P.M. Jan. 27 in front of Coronado Hall on the Northwestern campus, after which he led her up to his room on the third floor.

Court documents said once the two arrived at Martinez’s room, he told  her to perform oral sex. He then told her to remove her pants and lie on the floor; he put on a condom and had sexual intercourse with the girl.  The documents said she told him to stop, but he did not.

The documents said she left the dormitory and was picked up by her mother.

The girl did not inform anyone until the next day, when she spoke to the teacher and counselor.

In a videotaped interview, Martinez told authorities that he had engaged in sexual activity with the minor, the documents said. Under Oklahoma law, when a minor younger than 14 and a person over 18 engage in penetrative sexual activity that is second degree rape.

The offense is punishable by imprisonment for one to 15 years.
