An Islamorada woman told detectives she was attacked in her home by another woman early today. The suspect held her against her will and threatened her with a knife.
The attack reportedly took place at 1:20 a.m. The victim eventually managed to break away from her attacker and flee; the suspect ran after her. The two women fought and the victim was assisted by two good Samaritans who saw the fight and pulled the suspect off the victim, allowing the victim to escape.
The suspect ran from the scene. Detectives say they have been able to identify her with help from the victim, who knows who she is. They are continuing to investigate and anticipate making an arrest in the case soon.
