DETROIT (WJBK) - A Detroit man is accused of sexually assaulting his girlfriend's teenage daughter.
The teen, 15, took the witness stand Wednesday while Price, 35, was charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct and appeared in court Wednesday facing the possibility of life behind bars.
At the end of September, the girlfriend allegedly found them in bed together and attacked Price with a knife and her dog. Price ran but was arrested days later - found hiding in an abandoned house.
"He told me he wanted to be in a relationship with me," said the alleged victim.
The child testifying the abuse started when they lived with her grandmother. She was 14, while Price she says, started sneaking into her bed to have sex with her.
"When my grandmother gave me a room downstairs he came down to my room every night," she said. "The first time that I remember, I was downstairs asleep and I had on pink pajama bottoms and a pink tank top."
She testified at one point that her grandmother became suspicious.
"The second time my grandmother came downstairs because she thought she heard something and asked if he was down there, I said no," she said. "He went out the back and came in the front."
In September Price, her mom and their three young daughters, ages 1, 2 and 3 - moved into a home on Marlowe. It was there the abuse she says intensified, while her mother was at work.
"I remember being downstairs asleep, 1 or 2 in the morning and I woke up to him touching me," she said.

Then she says he finally got caught - her mom came home from work early in the morning of Sept. 29 to find her in bed with Price. She testified she had given her baby sister a bottle, then fell asleep - and doesn't remember what happened next.
"When I fell asleep I had all my clothes on," she said. "When I woke up, I had no clothes on.
"I woke up when my mom came upstairs and she hit me."
Price was bound over for trial - he remains behind bars.
