Man charged with continuous child sexual abuse in Burkburnett

Local News

A Waurika man is charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child in connection with alleged abuse of an 8-year-old girl for several years at two different homes in Burkburnett.

Cody Allen Atwood, 26, was arrested in Waurika April 24 and booked into Wichita County Tuesday on a $50,000 bond. 

A Burkburnett police detective began the investigation in March.

He and a forensic interviewer questioned the girl who they said at first said she was too scared to talk about what happened, and also that it was hard for her to explain.

When the girl did begin to talk, she told officials she would be blindfolded with her pajama pants and her hands tied behind her back before Atwood would begin what he called games, which police say were acts of sexual abuse.

She said it happened a lot of times and police estimated it occurred between ages 4- to 8-years-old.
