ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Alaska State Troopers are looking for a man who attacked a woman at a highway pullout.
Troopers spokesperson Beth Ipsen says the 21-year-old woman had pulled off the Seward Highway for a smoke break Tuesday morning when the man tried to force her into his SUV at knifepoint.
The woman fought back and dug her thumb in the man's left eye. She then drove to Anchorage, where she was treated for non-life-threatening knife wounds.
Ipsen says the woman doesn't know what pullout she stopped at, only that it was between Anchorage and the ski resort community of Girdwood 40 miles to the south.
