41-year-old Jason Stamper also faces 4th-dating violence and 3rd degree-criminal trespassing charges.

Local police were called to a Main St. for an alleged overdose incident at approximately 2:33 in the afternoon, where they encountered a woman–who’s identity was not revealed– running down the stairs and through the door, according to court records.

Allegedly, the woman in question was in distress, bleeding, sweating, and with a shirt that appeared stretched along with a red face after having been pinned in  room and was unable to leave, according to court records.

The officers on scene was then informed that the suspect, Jason Stamper, had allegedly strangled the woman and cut off her ability to breathe and had also slapped her to the point of causing a small laceration to the inside of her lip, according to court records.

As of Thursday Stamper is being held at the Clark County Detention Center on an $8,500 cash bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 22 at 1:30 p.m.
