When the victim made a move to leave the home, Stephens then allegedly “punched her in the left side of her stomach causing her instant pain,” the affidavit said.
“He then threw her onto the couch and got on top of her continuing to hit her in the stomach area. While he did so, (victim) attempted to grab her taser in an attempt to get him off of her. When she did so he grabbed the taser and slammed it onto the ground causing it to break,” the affidavit said.
The two fought on and off for the remainder of the afternoon, with the victim eventually falling asleep. When she woke up the next day, she “continued to plead with Mr. Stephens to let her leave.”
“She told Mr. Stephens she had to go to work. She told him if she did not go people would start to worry about her and would start wondering where she was,” the affidavit said.
Stephens allowed the victim to leave, the affidavit said. She drove to her home where she “saw the bruises on her arms, legs and shoulders.” The victim then drove to the SPD headquarters to file a report.
Stephens’s next court date has not yet been filed.
