Man arrested for lewd molestation

PRYOR, OK — A 20-year-old man is in the Mayes County Jail after being arrested Friday night for lewd molestation of a child under 16.

Gregory Blevins, was taken into custody by detectives at the Pryor Police Department following questioning.

“After a joint investigation with the Department of Human Services regarding allegations of child molestation, Blevins was brought in for questioning,” Detective Sergeant James Willyard said. “Detective Kevin Lanham and myself conducted the interview.”

According to Willyard, Blevins admitted lewd acts involving a 5-year-old female.

“He stated that he placed her hand on his penis for the purpose of assisting him with masturbation,” Willyard said.

Blevins said it only happened once, but admitted to detectives that if in a similar situation, he would be tempted to do it again.

He was subsequently arrested and booked into jail.

Blevins will be arraigned on Monday at 1:30 p.m. Bond will be determined at that time.
