TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A woman was choked and stabbed and had homophobic slurs written on her body with a marker in an attack early Sunday in Tacoma.

Police are looking for the man responsible for the hate crime.

The 45-year-old woman was attacked while looking for her dog that had slipped out of her house about 3 a.m. She was followed into an alley by the man who made homophobic slurs during the assault.

Police spokeswoman Loretta Cool says the woman is recovering from stab wounds to her arm, chest and thigh.

The incident will be the subject of a forum Saturday at the Rainbow Center, a support center for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Tacoma.
