PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) — As she called 911 after being attacked in her home in the middle of the night, a Portage woman told dispatchers she had been stabbed “all over.”

The assault happened just after midnight on May 5 at a home off Cora Drive, just south of East Osterhout Avenue. After stabbing Victoria Enos, the knife-wielding attacker fled from the house.

In an interview with 24 Hour News 8 the week after the attack, Enos recalled dragging herself to the phone to call for help. A recording of that 911 call was released Tuesday.

“Help me,” Enos can be heard saying, frantic and breathing heavily. “He stabbed me.”

“Where are you injured, Victoria? Where were you stabbed?” the dispatcher asked later in the call.

“All over,” she responded.

The dispatcher promised help was on the way. When asked who stabbed her, Enos told the dispatcher she didn’t know.

When police showed up to the home, they found Enos with multiple stab wounds to her chest and arms. Police were on scene investigating for two days.

Enos, 43, was initially hospitalized in critical condition but was back home the next week.

Police arrested 19-year-old Brandon Luevano about four days after the stabbing. Enos said Luevano knows her daughter and he wanted to hang out with her the night before, but she told him she was too tired. He allegedly stayed in the house and later attacked Enos.

He’s charged with first-degree home invasion, assault with intent to commit great bodily harm and two counts of car theft. His preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for June 28.
