Man sentenced to more than 25 years in Dayton double stabbing

A Dayton man will spend at least 27 years in prison for the stabbing of two men he reportedly lured into his Pointview Avenue basement.

Jaryld D. Portis, 47, was sentenced to 27-32 years during a hearing in Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Wednesday.

A jury found him guilty of four counts of felonious assault and one count of aggravated robbery in December.

Portis was found not guilty of a second aggravated robbery charge.

The charges stemmed from a Sept. 24 double stabbing in the 80 block of Pointview Avenue.

One of the victims was Portis’ landlord, according to a court affidavit.

“Mr. Portis lured the victims to the basement under the guise that there was a problem with a fuse box,” said the affidavit.

He reportedly hit both men in the head with an unknown object.

One of the victims lost the tip of his finger and both suffered severe lacerations during the attack, according to court documents.

The men identified Portis as their attacker and were taken to Miami Valley Hospital in critical condition.

Around $1,100 was also stolen during the incident, according to a police report.

The next morning, an officer attempted a traffic stop near Helena Street and Riverside Drive.

The suspect, who was later identified as Portis, refused to stop.

Officers used stop sticks to end a chase and took Portis into custody after a brief foot chase.
