The man allegedly immediately grabbed her from behind, put her in a chokehold and put a small knife to her throat.
“My friend turns around, notices I’m not with her, and turns around and just screams like, ‘Oh my god,’ and he lets go and just punctures my back and then runs off,” the sufferer mentioned.
The sufferer says the man did not strive to steal something from her and she or he would not know why he attacked her.
Police launched photographs of the suspect Saturday.
