July 6, 2019

CHICAGO (AP) — A 19-year-old Chicago man is scheduled to appear in court on charges he stabbed and sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl.

Police say Isaiha Nevitt turned himself in to police on Wednesday after a family member identified him from a community alert issued by Chicago detectives. He’s scheduled to appear in court Saturday for a bond hearing.

Authorities say Nevitt met the girl on Chicago’s Far South Side around 1 p.m. on June 23 and persuaded her to go with him to a wooded area. They say the girl was sexually assaulted and stabbed in the head, neck and arm. They say Nevitt ran off after the girl defended herself with a tree branch.

It was unclear Saturday if Nevitt has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
