NEWKIRK — A preliminary hearing is set for Alex William Peddicord, 29, Ponca City, who is facing a felony count of first degree rape filed on June 27.

Ponca City police report that Peddicord is now charged in connection to a rape reported in 2011.

In the case a 14-year-old female told police she was intoxicated and passed out. When she woke up Kutter E. Brabander was raping her.

The teen told police that she passed back out and later awoke in a strange house, which she left and ran down the road to Dollar General, which at the time was located at Grand and Ash.

PCPD Det. Cory Vincent reports in the affidavit that he recently learned that one of the DNA samples taken from the victim came back to Peddicord. Records also showed that Peddicord lived at the corner of Palm and Grand.

On June 2, 2022, Vincent made contact with the victim. She reportedly told the detective that she met Peddicord when she was 17 and that they did drugs together but that she does not remember him the night of the rape.

Vincent interviewed Peddicord at the Kay County Detention Center, where he is serving a one-year sentence after being convicted on a misdemeanor charge of domestic abuse, assault and battery.

Peddicord reportedly said he does not know the female and that he is a soft hearted guy who does not assault women.

Vincent showed Peddicord a photo of the female and he reportedly said, “She does not look familiar and I don’t like short haired girls. I don’t really like skinny girls to be honest. She is not my type. I do not want to get in trouble for something I didn’t do. I might have slept with her when I was real young but I don’t remember anything.”

On March 18, 2011, Brabander was charged  with first degree rape and contributing to the delinquency of minors in Kay County District Court.

On Oct. 24, 2011, the rape charge was amended to second degree and Brabander entered guilty pleas to the charges.  He was sentenced by Judge D.W. Boyd to 15 years in prison and ordered to register as a sex offender upon release.

According to the DOC website he was discharged from DOC on May 30, 2018 and has since been convicted of crimes in Payne, Cleveland and Noble counties, including failure to register as a sex offender and stolen vehicle charges.

He is currently under the supervision of the Central District, Sheridan Office in Oklahoma City.

Peddicord is being held in the county jail on $250,000 bond.
