DURANT, Okla.--A victim is frustrated after police say she was kidnapped twice by the same man. Authorities say a restraining order and pending kidnapping charges were not enough to keep Calvin Sterling away from his ex-girlfriend.

Durant police say Sterling broke into his ex-girlfriend’s home this morning, ripping the screen off the window. They say he took the woman to a tent in the woods behind his home in Tishomingo.

Johnston County authorities say Sterling sexually assaulted the woman before she could call for help.

Sterling was out of jail on bond. In September police arrested Sterling for kidnapping the same woman, driving her to Denton, Texas, then leading the police on a chase. Sterling’s bond was initially set for $300,000 for the first case, but was reduced to $20,000 after an appeal. His mother was able to most the lower bond amount.

Police interviewed the victim, who is not identified in sexual assault cases, before she received a medical exam Tuesday night.
Police say Sterling violated a restraining order twice..

"She's very frightened and of course she's feeling some relief at this point because the suspect's in jail as of now so she's able to get relief there,” said Lt. Johnny Rutherford with Durant police. “Let's just hope the courts will back it up and not allow this subject to get out on a low bond amount."

Police say the district attorney plans to ask for no bond when Sterling is arraigned Wednesday afternoon.
