Man In Colorado Prison Admits To Raping Oklahoma Women Over 15 Years

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Police say a Colorado prison inmate has been connected to 14 sexual assaults that occurred in Norman from 1985 to 2001.

Officers say 50-year-old Robert Bruce admitted to the assaults on female students at the University of Oklahoma, where he once attended. Investigators zeroed in on him when his DNA was entered into a national database after convictions in Colorado.

Authorities allege Bruce followed the women home, broke into their residences and raped them.

In Colorado, he was sentenced to six years for sexual assault; 24 years for burglary and 64 years for trying to kill a Pueblo police officer.

Norman detectives interviewed him in Colorado and say Bruce pinpointed where the attacks occurred.

A call to his attorney at the Colorado State Public Defender’s office wasn’t immediately returned.
