Victim pleads for help finding her attacker


Deputies said Friday that a woman who was severely beaten was hit with a metal broom handle, a metal cane and a vacuum cleaner for at least 30 minutes before she was able to call 911.

Now the Clark County Sheriff's Office is asking for the public's help to find the man they say is responsible for the attack Thursday in the 11400 block of Gerlaugh Road.

Wesley J. Tigner, 33, of Dayton is wanted for aggravated assault and aggravated burglary, according to a release. He has an extensive criminal history – including 53 previous arrests in Montgomery County – and should be considered armed and dangerous, according to the Clark County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies said the victim called 911 just before 6 p.m. after crawling outside her home.

The victim, 35-year-old Stephanie Corbin, told News Center 7 on Friday that she wants Tigner found, and quickly.

"The doctors at the hospital said I'm lucky to be alive," she said Friday, after her release from Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. "He just kept beating me and beating me and beating me."

Corbin said Tigner is a former acquaintance, and that he beat her over "a money issue."

Responding deputies Thursday night put yellow crime tape around the bi-level home in the Park Layne subdivision.

"We found that she had multiple injuries," said Sgt. Mike Young. "You can tell it was a pretty significant attack."

The victim's mother was home during the attack, but was not hurt.

Investigators remained on scene for nearly five hours Thursday night at the home. The scene was processed by the sheriff's office and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
