A 24-year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her bedroom, then stabbing her after she fought back and bit him in Kansas, U.S. Spencer Franklin is facing a long list of criminal charges, including sodomy, armed criminal action, burglary and assault, after he broke into the woman’s home and attacked her.
The victim fought back and bit Franklin’s genitals. Police say that act was the key to cracking the case. Just before 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, the victim woke up to find a stranger, Franklin, standing in the doorway of her bedroom. .
As he approached, she could see he was holding a knife. The victim told police, Franklin got on top of her, saying, “It’s OK. I’m not going to hurt you.”
The suspect demanded the woman perform oral sex on him, and according to court documents, the victim felt he was going to stab her no matter what and knew she had to escape.
The victim bit down on Franklin’s private part, and that’s when he stabbed her, once in the torso and twice in the thigh. The victim ran out of her bedroom and to the front door just as her roommate got back from walking her dog. .
Franklin was caught on a doorbell camera, and the woman identified him in a line-up. When Franklin was arrested, officers got a warrant to search his body and found teeth marks, which were still bleeding.
