LONDON, Ky. (AP) – Authorities in Kentucky say a woman reported a man with red and white flashing lights on his vehicle pulled her over on a state highway and attempted to sexually assault her at knifepoint.
A news release from Laurel County Sheriff John Root says the woman told deputies she had been driving Wednesday near London when a speeding car approached, flashed red and white lights and pulled her over.
The woman told deputies a man armed with a large hunting knife got into her back seat, forced her to drive to a hayfield and attempted to assault her. She says she managed to escape when he got out along the state highway to make a phone call. She drove to a hospital to get medical attention.
The suspect isn’t in custody.
