HEBER CITY (AP) - Authorities say one woman has stabbed a man at a gathering centered on peace and nonviolence in the Uinta National Forest.

Wasatch County Sheriff’s deputy Chris Goode says 32-year-old Leilani Novak-Garcia gouged the man twice with a knife at a campsite about 1 a.m. Monday.

His name was not immediately released. The woman, known to some as “Hitler,” had fled by the time officers arrived.

Forest rangers told investigators they earlier heard someone shout, “I’ll kill you.”

Police believe Novak-Garcia is still in or around Heber City. She is described as 5-foot-9, 170 pounds, with hazel eyes and black hair.

Police advise anyone who sees her to call 911 and avoid approaching her.

About 10,000 attendees are expected at the Rainbow Family Gathering before its keynote celebration July 4.
