by: Marina Brett

A Hollister Teen is facing multiple charges in connection to a Home Invasion and Sexual Assault.

18 Year Old Jessie Wilbur allegedly tried to undress a woman after forcing his way into her home in the area of Church Road north of Branson on November 25 according to an arrest affidavit which states Wilbur stabbed the victim in the arm before he got dressed, took food from her refrigerator, then ran off.

Wilbur has been charged with four felonies according to the Taney County Sheriff’s Office and is being held at the Taney County Jail.

Wilbur had pleaded guilty earlier this month to a pair of unrelated incidents in Hollister including burning down the Mule Barn while smoking Meth. Wilbur is also accused of causing about $1300 damage to Christmas Lights on Downing Street and  and ripping up an American Flag at Hollister’s Old Train Depot.

Wilbur is scheduled to be sentenced for those incidents on December 6.
