Victor Stevens - Repeat Sex Offender - Stabbed by new victim

A registered sex offender is in the hospital with a stab wound to the chest after police said a teenage girl stabbed him in self-defense.

Police received a call of a bloody man walking along Mount Victory Road outside Powhatan Point around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, but the responding officer found nothing.

According to police, moments later a 16-year-old girl and her mother came to the Powhatan Point Police Department to report a rape.
Sgt. Tom DeVaul of the Belmont County Sheriff's Department said Victor Stevens, 42, of Powhatan Point, crawled through the girl's bedroom window when she was sleeping, threatened her with a knife and began to sexually assault her.

Police said a K-9 unit tracked Stevens' scent and located him at his home nearby.

"We made entry and discovered him hiding in the bedroom underneath the mattress and he had a stab wound to the chest," said DeVaul.

Stevens faces charges of aggravated burglary and aggravated rape.

Police said Stevens previously sexually assaulted a handicapped girl in 2007.
When he's released from the hospital, deputies said he will be transferred to the Belmont County Jail.
