ROSSMOOR, Calif. (AP) — Orange County authorities say a 28-year-old woman was repeatedly stabbed while she was jogging at night and survived the attack.

The Los Angeles Times reports ( ) the woman was attacked shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday in Rossmoor when a man approached her from behind, knocked her down and began stabbing her.

Sheriff's spokesman Jim Amormino says the woman fought back, and was able to knock the knife from the assailant's hand and break free, but he caught up to her and continued the attack, stabbing her in the face, arms and hands.

She was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a local hospital and released.

The woman told authorities the attacker appeared to be angry. Amormino says he didn't try to sexually assault or rob her.
