A Natchitoches man is behind bars, accused of stabbing and sexually assaulting a woman inside his home last week before she managed to escape.
Police say it happened in the 1500 block of Pauline St. on March 4, when 57-year-old Kenneth Wafer allegedly stabbed the victim in the hand with a pair of scissors and tried to force himself on her.
Police say the woman was able to escape with just her pants on and run across the street for help.
Wafer has been arrested and charged with sexual battery and false imprisonment. He is being held at the Natchitoches Parish Detention Center, where he is awaiting bond.
