Pervert Who Stabbed Woman With Syringe Filled With Cum In Jailed Supermarket
A pervert who stabbed a woman with a syringe filled with his own semen was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Thomas Byron Stemen, 51, pleaded guilty to assault after attacking Katie Peters at Christopher’s Fine Foods in Maryland, United States.
Ms Peters was returning her cart when he punched her in the butt on February 18 of last year.
CCTV footage – later seen by police – shows her carrying the cart as Stemen pushes her from behind with a syringe.
When the victim turns around after being attacked, she can be seen staring at the ground to try and figure out what happened.
Stemen, dressed in jeans and a blue sweater, is also looking at the ground and is said to have said, “I know that looks like a bee sting, doesn’t it?”
He then continues to follow Ms. Peters and leaves the store just after she exits.
The pervert was charged with assault after police showed the footage, Anne Arundel County Police said.
The victim said she confronted Stemen after the attack.
After confronting Stemen, Ms Peters got in her car on her way home, but called her son when she started to feel a burning sensation and found a puncture wound on herself.
She said: “I started to go home (and) it started to hurt a lot.
“I called my son and said, ‘Something is wrong, I hope nothing will happen. I hope I will come home, I love you ”.
Mrs Peters said Fox5 : “I have no idea what was in that needle. It could be rat poison, HIV, I don’t know what’s in that needle.
Police said they found a large syringe filled with liquid in Stemen’s car during a search, along with other syringes at his home, local news station WJLA reports.
The prosecutor said Peters lived down the street from Stemen and came into contact with two other people but did not successfully inject them, CBS Baltimore reports.

Anne Arundel County Police Sgt. Jacklyn Davis said: “If you’ve seen this video, it’s very aggressive, it’s very deliberate – and it makes us think it’s not the first time he’s done this.”
Stemen also served a warrant in 1999 as a fugitive from justice, according to Maryland Online Court records.
Records also show he went to court in 2013 for a civil action for domestic violence, Mail Online reports.
Stemen pleaded guilty to assaulting a supermarket last year through an Alford plea, which is a guilty plea where a criminal maintains his innocence, SCS reports.
