Oklahoma's Most Wanted: Devin Dar-Khan
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
Each week we feature seven of Oklahoma County's most wanted. One of the seven will be selected by the "Wheel of Justice" to be featured on air. Learn more here.
Devin Ramon Dar-Khan, 24, has been wanted on a warrant for kidnapping, first degree burglary, aggravated assault and battery, pointing a firearm and possession of a firearm after previous conviction since Jan. 31, 2017. He is the first person selected to be profiled on Oklahoma's Most Wanted.
Dar-Khan has been wanted since August of 2015, committing crimes across Garfield and Oklahoma counties in that time period. Police in Enid say he committed domestic abuse and threatened to commit an act of violence. Six months later he was charged with escaping detention in Garfield County.
In December of 2016, Edmond police said Dar-Khan kidnapped his former girlfriend with a sword-like weapon, burglarized the house and then assaulted her. He's also charged with felon in possession of a firearm and pointing a firearm at another.
Then just six days later, police say he threatened violence in Garfield County.
"Anytime you have someone who's willing to kidnap someone," Mark Opgrande with the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office said. "Who, in this case, supposedly someone he's been intimate with as far as a girlfriend, was not allowing her to leave the apartment."
Police say at 12:20 a.m. Dec. 6 officers were called to 2500 N. Thomas in response to a burglary. 911 dispatch told the officers they were on the phone with a woman at the residence stating a man was attempting to break into her home.
While still on the line, the dispatchers heard a struggle. Officers on scene found the door to the woman's apartment kicked in and the woman gone. Police say the woman returned to her apartment later Tuesday. She told officers she had been taken against her will by her ex-boyfriend Dar-Khan.
Police say they found a "sword-type" weapon was found at the apartment that Dar-Khan used to threaten the victim.
These kind of charges make Dar-Khan someone law enforcement wants to get off the streets as quickly as possible. They say any tips are going to be key.
"The normal public they don't see these individuals. They don't pay attention to it too much. You're too busy. You've got a lot of stuff going on. You've got your own life to do but this might let people know there are people out there like this." Oklahoma County Sheriff spokesman Mark Opgrande said.
