TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Police are still investigating an overnight stabbing in an alley near Mettler and Chestnut in north Toledo, but one man has been arrested.

Police say they received a call reporting the stabbing around 4 a.m. Monday. According to police, the victim thought she was getting a ride from Dontae Upchurch, but he took a detour down an alley and sexually assaulted her. When she tried to fight off the attack, police say he stabbed her in the eye with a knife.

"She definitely did some things right, as far as being able to fend off the attack before it got too serious. She did have a cell phone on her. She was able to make contact with the police quickly, and she was good at giving us a description," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan with the Toledo Police Department.

Shortly after the incident, police took Upchurch into custody. He has been charged with felonious assault.
