TUTTLE, Okla. – An Oklahoma man is accused of raping and assaulting three teens while holding them captive at his home over a span of two years.

According to the Express Star, 23-year-old Gregory Todd Zavala is facing three counts of kidnapping, two counts of child sexual abuse, two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, one count of rape in the first degree and one count of child pornography.

Officials say two of the victims were 16 and 17 at the time they were reportedly kidnapped and subjected to abuse.

The third victim’s age was not disclosed, but officials say she was a minor at the time.

Court documents detail how Zavala allegedly enticed three women to his home in Tuttle at different times between 2011 and 2013.

Officials say Zavala also shares the home with his parents.

Zavala allegedly threatened to kill each victim and their families if they ever left his house, according to an affidavit from the Grady County District Attorney’s office.

One of the teen victims told police she was locked in Zavala’s bedroom and held against her will.

She told police she was allegedly forced to have sexual relations with Zavala “on an almost daily basis.”

According to the victim, Zavala told her he was trying to get her pregnant. She also says he told her that he would kill her and her family if she ever ran away.

The victim said she later became pregnant, but was able to escape before the baby was born.

Another teenage victim said she was held at Zavala’s home between January and August 2012.

She told police Zavala would strangle her with a belt or his hand. She also says he told her the only way she was leaving his house was “in a body bag.”

According to court documents, the victim says she was raped numerous times and also became pregnant during her captivity.

She was also able to escape before giving birth.

The third victim was reportedly Zavala’s girlfriend.

She told police she started dating the accused kidnapper in August 2012.

Shortly after she moved into his home, she says Zavala had her car towed, leaving her stranded at his house.

Zavala allegedly beat the woman with a hammer, leaving a permanent deformity in her skull.

She told police that while he was hitting her, he told her he was going to kill her and raise her child after she died.

The victim says she was raped almost daily and subjected to other forms of torture and abuse.

According to the Express Star, another 16-year-old from the Tuttle area who was last seen with Zavala is currently missing.

At this time, officials do not know whether or not he is connected to her disappearance.

Zavala’s bond is set at $2 million. His preliminary hearing date is set for June 9.
