Police arrested an HIV-positive man identified as James Clinton Houser, a Pennsylvania resident who found himself behind bars last week after he reportedly attacked a woman and then purposely spilled his infected on her body, according to police.

Court documents indicated Houser intentionally dribbled his contaminated blood onto the woman “in sufficient amount to transmit the disease.”

According to the Chambersburg Public Opinion, The victim told authorities that the 37-year-old Houser struck her multiple times and forced her to the ground before he picked up a cracked piece of glass and threatened her.

Houser, who cut himself with the glass to the extent of needing stitches, perched himself onto the victim and bled all over her face, legs and chest.

The woman tried to flee and even put on a pair of shoes while Houser was in another room, but he came back to stop her, held her down and dropped more of his blood on her before she ultimately escaped.

The victim was drenched in blood when law enforcement officials discovered her hiding in a nearby residence.

Houser was apprehended and was charged with simple assault, aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and terroristic threats, along with a summary charge of harassment.

Police booked James Clinton Houser into the custody of the Franklin County jail, where remains on a $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to appear in court in November.
