Man wanted for sex assault in Detroit after girlfriend finds him in bed with her teenage daughter

Kevin Price wanted for sexual assault of 15-year-old girl, Detroit police say

DETROIT – Detroit police are actively searching for a man wanted in connection with the sexual assault of his girlfriend's 15-year-old daughter.

Police said Kevin Price, 35, shouldn't be too hard to find after he was stabbed and attacked by a dog as he tried to get away from a home on Marlowe Street.

"We do consider him dangerous," said Detroit police Det. Robert Kane. "We would like to have him turn himself in as soon as possible. If anybody has seen Mr. Price, please call 911, call Crime Stoppers so we can get him in custody as soon as possible."

Price is accused of sexually assaulting his girlfriend's daughter overnight. When his girlfriend, who works overnight, got home, she found Price in bed with the teenager, police said.

"Why is my daughter in bed with you and she doesn't have on any clothes?" the girl's mother said.

She said she flew into a rage after she got home from work at 4:30 a.m. Friday and caught Price in the bed.

"I just snapped and went crazy," she said. "He pushed me down the stairs and my dog started attacking him."

She said her daughter told police that Price threatened to kill her and her mother if she told anyone about his violent actions.

The girl's mother said she grabbed a knife.

"I stabbed him once there, and then he ended up pushing me down," she said. "My dog started attacking him and he got to the front door."

Detroit police set up a perimeter on Marlowe Street east of Fenkell Avenue.

James McClain, who lives down the street, said Price was hiding from police in an open van.

"(He was) trying to get away," McClain said. "Hiding from the police."

Price is a parole absconder who has done prison time for unlawful imprisonment, multiple weapons charges and assault.

He's been in a relationship with the teen's mother for the last four years.

"I said, 'Did he touch you?'" the mother said. "She was, like, 'Yes.' I just went crazy from there because I know she's not lying."

She took a job as a security officer about three weeks ago and took on more shifts. Price wasn't working, so she said he was alone with the children. She said her daughter started withdrawing almost right away.

Police said the woman is in no legal jeopardy for defending her daughter and going after Price with a knife.

Three other young children that the woman has with Price were in the home. Children's Services is opening up a case involving those children.
