Police identified Porter as a suspect and obtained an arrest warrant for him on a deadly conduct charge.

When they found him and picked him up on that charge Friday, they found he had an outstanding arrant for sexual assault using a knife.

On December 8, 2019 police were called to a convenience store in the 600 block of North Third Street where the female victim had gone to call to report she had been sexually assaulted at her residence by someone she knew.

She told officers Porter had forced her to have sex with her and threatened her with the knife.

Porter remained in the Bell County Jail Monday on both charges.
