MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A 25-year-old woman who was reported missing from the San Francisco area was arrested while hitchhiking in Medford and accused of trying to stab a man who gave her a ride.

Police say Kelsey Ann Pawlyk was lodged in the Jackson County Jail Tuesday on attempted assault and disorderly conduct charges.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1yH6RRT) an off-duty cab driver offered to give her a ride out of the rain when he saw her walking along Interstate 5 at Central Point. He says she wanted to go to Ashland and became upset when he said he could take her only to a bus station in Medford. He says she began punching him and pulled a knife, which he was able to take away.
