OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – An Oklahoma man allegedly attempted suicide while he was being interviewed by authorities about an accusation that recently came to light.

The man, James Ross, 65, has been accused of rape of three young girls.

On Wednesday, a young girl spoke with police and told them she had been raped several times for the past few years by Ross, according to KFOR.

The girl told authorities that Ross kept her from coming forward by threatening to slit her throat if she ever told anyone.

During the interview, the girl told police that Ross not only sexually assaulted her, but he also sexually assaulted her two younger sisters.

KFOR reports that the police report states that Ross forced the teen to perform oral sex on him.

After the girl came forward, authorities brought Ross in for questioning, where he allegedly started to cut his wrists.

KFOR reports that authorities were able to stop Ross and he was treated by emergency responders.

Ross faces 58 counts of rape.
