    An Oklahoma man faces kidnapping and rape charges after he held three teenaged girls against their will at his parents' home over the course of two years, police say.

    Gregory Zavala, 23, is also charged with child sex abuse and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to KFOR. Investigators said Zavala lured each of the three girls to the home in Tuttle, Oklahoma, at different times between 2011 and 2013.

    Zavala allegedly held the teens captive for months at a time. Zavala reportedly told each girl that he would kill them and their families if they tried to escape.

    Authorities said two of the girls were 16 and 17 at the time of the kidnapping, and that Zavala sexually abused them on a daily basis. A third victim's age was not disclosed, but police said she was a minor.

    This happened between 2011 and 2013 and the girls were able to escape, but he's just now being charged. Why wasn't he arrested after the first girl escaped to safety? Am I missing something?

    From what I gathered, he threatened their families with bodily harm. The first girl probably never told anyone the truth (like Abby did initially) until he was in custody. Just a guess, though.

    yeah, I have to wonder if the third girl whose age was not disclosed was the one who triggered the investigation and the other two came forward with truth after he was in custody. Before that time those two teens could have simply fed authorities the story they were told to or let people believe they were simply runaways during their time of captivity. Just a guess.

    Investigators interviewed the three victims earlier this month. They are now 20, 20 and 23 years old. What they described is horrific.

    One woman was 16 when she met Zavala in March or April of 2011, an investigator states. Two weeks later, Zavala locked her in his bedroom and raped her “on an almost daily basis.”

    She was scared for her life and felt isolated, describing the home as “in the middle of nowhere,” according to an affidavit. “She did not know anyone in that area that could help her escape from Zavala,” it reads. She became pregnant and then was somehow able to escape.

    Another woman was 17 when she was held captive at the Tuttle home, from about January to August 2012, the affidavit states. During that time, she was punched, strangled, hit with a metal bar and cut with a box knife.

    One time, Zavala is alleged to have shoved his hands into the back of her throat, causing her to vomit and be unable to eat for a period of time, the investigator wrote.
    She, too, was sexually assaulted and became pregnant as a result, court records show. She was eventually able to escape.

    A third victim began dating Zavala in October 2012, court records show. She was homeless at the time and had no family support, and Zavala offered her a place to live. But shortly after she moved in, Zavala had her car towed, leaving her with no transportation.

    In one particularly violent assault, Zavala allegedly bashed the woman in the head with a hammer multiple times in December 2012, causing a permanent skull deformity. When she tried to run from him, he struck her again in the head with the hammer and in the abdomen with a metal bar. “Zavala told (her) no one would miss her when she was dead, because no one was looking for her,” the affidavit states.

    The woman told investigators Zavala raped her nearly every day, court records show. Zavala allegedly used a belt on occasion to strangle her during the attacks, causing her to lose consciousness.

    Both teens became pregnant and were able to escape before giving birth.

    seems hard to believe the parents were completely unaware if they did indeed all live in the house together. sickening.

    Disgusting. He needs to go to the psychiatric unit in the Oklahoma prison system and stay there until after his last breath.
