OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (KWTX) - Police arrested Michael Eric Coghill, 33, a man charged with forcible fondling and lewd or indecent proposals or acts involving a child, soon after Coghill took a beating at the hands of a father of one of the victims who recorded the alleged act with a video camera.
The alleged lewd act and ensuing assault happened at a bus stop in the 8700 block of SW 36th Street on Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
A police incident report obtained by News 10 states police officers responded to the scene after they received a call informing them that a man who had “been coming out to the bus stop and touching kids” had been confronted and assaulted by another man.
When police arrived at the scene, the man who assaulted Coghill told officers he recently learned Coghill was touching boys at the bus stop and that it had happened more than once, according to the police incident report.
The report is redacted to protect the identity of the father and the victim, described only as a 9-year-old boy. Fox News and News 9 both report the man who assaulted Coghill is the father of the 9-year-old victim. The boy allegedly told the father that Coghill would jog to the bus stop regularly and touch his back in a way that made him feel uncomfortable, the report states.
