Sandy police were looking for a knife-wielding man who attacked a woman shortly after she got off a TRAX light rail train early Thursday morning.
Police Sgt. John Arnold said that just after midnight, the 25-year-old woman was walking from the Civic Center TRAX station at the 115 E. Sego Lily Drive station toward State Street when she passed an empty field. Her assailant described as a malodorous, dirty white man in his 30s with shaggy blond hair, wearing an orange hooded sweatshirt and khaki pants apparently came from that field.
"He came up behind her and put her in a bear hug and they fell to the ground and wrestled. He pulled a hunting knife and told her to calm down, but she had a soda pop bottle in her pocket and used it to hit him on the head a couple times," Arnold said.
