Heres the thing about alleys: Sometimes they have sex offenders in them.
Its common knowledge that when one sees an alley, the three-question rule should be employed: Is there a person in the alley? Is that person alive and moving? Are they moving because theyre having a wank? If the answer to these questions is yes, its advisable that you avoid that alley.
If only Laurie Cooper knew this before she approached 47-year-old Henry Sibley, a registered sex offender, in an alley behind the business where she works, she could have prevented some truly unfortunate nightmares.
On Feb. 9, Cooper and her boss were disposing of garbage near SW 59th Street and Western Avenue when they saw Sibley. Though they originally thought he was dead, their concern took quite a different tone when they noticed he was moving. Sibley then exposed himself to the women.
Rather than running away, the women did the only logical thing they could and recorded the incident, in detail, on a cell phone camera.
They then called OKC police.
With the nerve of a thousand nude Art 101 models, Sibley was still in the alley and was arrested shortly thereafter.
