UPDATE: The day Villalobos’ trial was set to begin, he decided he did not want to face the wrath of a jury and instead entered a blind plea of guilty. Villalobos’ sentencing has been set for May 31.
3/6/2013 – OKC, OK — A man accused of a horrific robbery and rape along S. Robinson Ave. is set to go to trial Monday.
According to court records, Bryant Hajaly Villalobos, 21 (18 at the time of the crime) approached four young men and a young woman late one night in April of 2010 in Draper Park – located at SW 37 and S. Robinson Ave. in south Oklahoma City.
Villalobos allegedly used a small pistol to rob all five of the people of everything they had on them.
Villalobos then allegedly did the unthinkable, he took the young woman to the playground area and repeatedly raped her at gun point while her boyfriend and three others felt powerless to do anything for fear the teenage girl would be killed.
Villalobos then reportedly fled to his home at 104 SW Grand Blvd., where he lived with his parents – which backs up to Draper Park and was only feet away from where the crime was committed.
Police responded to the scene and located the personal items stolen from the victims inside Villalobos’s residence. Villalobos then reportedly made a full confession.
Villalobos is charged with rape in the first degree, attempted forcible anal sodomy, forcible oral sodomy, six counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of burglary in the second degree.
If convicted, Villalobos faces multiple life sentences.
While in custody and awaiting trial, Villalobos picked up additional felony charges for possession of contraband in a penal institution.
The park where this 2010 rape and robbery occurred is also a Oklahoma City Police Department P.A.L. headquarters (Police Athletic League) and known for the regular appearance of prostitutes, pimps and lewd activity.
* Note: This crime does not have any apparent connection to prostitution, but is being reported because JohnTV highlights criminal activity in the S. Robinson area – an area known for prostitution, trafficking and violence against women.
