    A former San Francisco State University cheerleader thrown into a glass window of a high-rise dorm was acquitted of several felony charges after a jury determined he stabbed his attacker in self-defense.

    San Francisco's public defender said Friday that jurors found 21-year-old Victor Perez not guilty of multiple felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and assault causing great bodily injury.

    Deputy Public Defender Kwixuan Maloof said Perez was at a 2016 party when a wrestler tackled the cheerleader, launching them both into a plate glass window.

    Perez was bloody and covered in broken glass when he reached for a pocket knife with a 1-inch blade to fend off the wrestler that witnesses said was still pummeling him.
