Mom holds HIV-positive man at gunpoint after finding him raping young daughter: police

An Oklahoma mother held an HIV-positive youth sports coach at gunpoint after finding him sexually abusing her young daughter inside her home, police said.

“He raped me,” an unidentified 12-year-old girl told investigators this month after her mother made the discovery in her Oklahoma City house, the Kansas City Star reported.

Police said suspect Donovan Scott Sheppard, 39, had gotten into a bar fight on Jan. 13 and was picked up by the mother, with whom he was living at the time.


The mother, who was first only identified as an adult female living in the home, awoke and soon found Sheppard raping her daughter, according to reports.

Police responded to the home and found the mother holding Sheppard at gunpoint.

Sheppard has been a youth baseball coach for a team called the Oklahoma Aftermath for the last several years, per the Kansas City Star. He reportedly admitted to police that he was HIV-positive, and investigators reported in the criminal complaint that he was not using a condom during the alleged assault.


Sheppard was arrested and is being held on a $500,000 bond at the Cleveland County Jail, according to inmate records reviewed by Fox News Digital. He was hit with a bevy of charges, including lewd or indecent proposals or acts to a child; engaging in a pattern of criminal offenses; exposing others to AIDS; rape, first degree; and rape by instrumentation.
