LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shively man has been accused of kidnapping a woman, sodomizing her and cutting her with a knife.

According to an arrest report, Shively Police were called to the area of Dixie Highway, near Stallings Avenue, Monday, Jan. 25, after a woman reported an assault.

Police say the victim said she was at the Shively Apartments on Dixie Highway, near Ralph Avenue, when a man held a knife to her and made her drive to another apartment on Standing Oak Drive, near E. Pages Lane.

He then allegedly forced her into the apartment and demanded that she undress at knifepoint. Police say he then forced her to get into the shower and perform a sex act.

He allegedly cut her with the knife in the process.

When the woman met with police, she had cuts on her arm and back, according to an arrest report. She was checked out by EMS, but declined to be taken to the hospital.

She then took police to the apartment where the alleged assault took place.

Police later arrested 26-year-old Lawrence Overstreet at an apartment complex near the corner of Clinton Place and Ralph Avenue. He is charged with kidnapping, first degree sodomy and second degree assault.

He is currently being held in Louisville Metro Corrections.
