NORTH TUSTIN (CBS) — An unidentified thirty-something woman was tackled, dragged to a vacant lot and had her shirt cut off at knifepoint in a suburban area of North Tustin, Orange County sheriff’s deputies said.

The woman was walking at 10 p.m. Saturday in the 1800 block of Erwin Lane when the attack occurred, according to sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino.

The woman told deputies that a man grabbed her from behind and tackled her. He then “carried her several yards to a dirt lot, where he asked `what were you talking about?’,” Amormino said.

“He removed her sweater and cut her shirt with a knife, but the woman kicked and was able to run away,” Amormino said. The woman’s only physical injuries were scratches, he said.

The assailant was described as a man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-11, wearing a dark hoodie. He was accompanied by a second man also dressed in a dark hoodie.

Deputies asked anyone with clues to call them at (714) 628-7170.
