NORMAN — A 26-year-old man was charged with two counts of sexual battery Tuesday after separate incidents on the Cleveland Area Rapid Transit campus bus.

Troy T. Paige was arrested by University of Oklahoma Police on Monday on complaints of lewd or indecent proposals to two females.

According to affidavits filed with the charges, during both incidents, Paige sat down next to a female on the bus and began touching her leg. The female victims were ages 25 and 23.

Paige asked the 25-year-old an inappropriate question and then “kept rubbing his left hand on her right leg, then apologizing,” the affidavit states.

The 23-year-old told Paige to remove his hand when he placed it on her left leg. Then Paige put his pinkie finger on her leg and was “caressing it,” the affidavit states.

After Paige was placed under arrest, the victim requested to file charges, the document states.
