Former Georgetown University standout player Victor Page, 44, was sentenced to 20 years for strangling and attempting to sexually assault his live-in girlfriend's 17-year-old daughter.

Police said Page forced his way into the victim's bedroom on the night of Dec. 30, 2018 and pushed her to the ground. He started strangling her and tried to remove her clothing. She managed to get away, and made it to the parking garage of the apartment complex where she, her mother and Page lived. Page caught up to her though, forced her to the ground and started strangling her again for a significant period of time.

Surveillance cameras caught the incident on tape, and as people arrived at the parking garage and saw what was happening, they were able to help get Page off the victim.

Page was sentenced to 25 years, suspend all but 20 years for the incident. He'll also be on supervised probation for five years after he's released, will have to do a mental health evaluation and will have to be on the Sex Offender Registry for 15 years.

Page was a star player for Georgetown for two years, even leading the Big East in scoring his sophomore season.

He left for the NBA draft, but didn't make the cut - though he was on a training camp roster of the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1997.

WUSA9's Bruce Johnson got to know Page several years ago while he worked on his book, All or Nothing, the Victor Page story. At that time, he was still trying to get to the NBA.

"But it was clear to me Victor Page was still int he streets, and now smoking crack cocaine," Johnson said.

Page -- who is originally from Barry Farms -- had been blinded in one eye by a gunshot from an old neighborhood score, then went to prison for assaulting his girlfriend, all before he was caught in this recent attack - while on probation.
