She was able to fight back and that is when she was stabbed by the suspect, who immediately fled. The victim was able to identify her attacker as Lonnie Todd from a photographic lineup.
Deputies from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office located Todd at the address on his Florida Driver’s License in Fort McCoy, FL and take him into custody for the warrant.
