Porum’s assistant police chief has been charged with two counts of child sexual abuse, according to court documents.
David Ray Kash, 49, was charged Thursday after he sexually assaulted a 9-year-old and 7-year-old between September and December, according to documents filed with the case.
Muskogee County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call the night of Dec. 19. The caller told arriving deputies that the children said Kash was sexually assaulting them, states an affidavit filed with the case.
“We received the initial call and began the initial investigation and then turned it over to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation,” said Chief Deputy Michael Mahan. “It’s standard procedure whenever it involves another law enforcement agency within Muskogee County.”
The OSBI then conducted a sexual assault nurse examination, or SANE, which found injuries to one of the children were consistent with child sexual abuse, the affidavit states.
During interviews with Kash on Dec. 20 and Dec. 23, the affidavit states, Kash confessed to the interviewer that he was often left alone with the children and began sexually abusing the two children in question sometime in September.
“[Kash] described instances of receiving oral sex from juvenile 1 and juvenile 2, and also detailed instances of vaginal manipulation on juvenile 2 occurring at [Kash’s] residence located in Porum, Oklahoma,” the affidavit states.
One of the children detailed several instances of assault during an interview at Kids’ Space, Muskogee County Child Advocacy Center, according to the affidavit. The OSBI later concluded that Kash had abused the children and should be charged with child sexual abuse, the affidavit states.
Kash was subsequently arrested and remains in custody at the Muskogee County/City Detention Facility without bond. His next court appearance is Jan. 9.
