CHICAGO — A man is facing charges on Saturday after allegedly stabbing a teenage girl dozens of times and sexually assaulting her last week.
19-year-old Isaiha Nevitt turned himself in to police and appeared in bond court on Saturday morning. The Chicago Tribune reports Nevitt turned himself in after a family member recognized him in surveillance photos police distributed in a community alert.
The 15-year-old girl said she met Nevitt near 117th Street and Halsted Street in West Pullman around 1 p.m. June 23.
The girl said he took her to a secluded, wooded area and sexually assaulted her there. He then stabbed her 41 times with a kitchen knife, she said.
She managed to fight him off and get away.
