SOUTH SALEM - Police are searching for a knife-wielding suspect whom they say targeted a woman in South Salem Wednesday night.

Police say the male suspect approached the woman while she was walking her neighbor's dog near Bouton and Gilbert streets at around 11:30 p.m. They say he grabbed her from behind and stabbed her several times as she tried to fight him off.

The victim was treated for her wounds and is expected to be OK.
