Clark College attacker stabbed woman in neck in Vancouver: cops

Police are looking for a deranged nut who stabbed a woman in the neck on a Washington state college campus in an unprovoked attack Wednesday — and may have tried to kidnap another woman earlier this week.

The harrowing attack Wednesday on the Clark College campus unfolded as the suspect approached the victim while she sat on a bench outside the Archer Gallery on the school grounds screaming for help, the Vancouver Police Department said in a press release.

Instead, the goon attacked her.

Police said the woman initially thought she had been punched but looked down and saw she was bleeding and realized she had been stabbed, police said.

She was rushed to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Surveillance photos of the suspect released by the cops show the assailant fleeing the scene wearing brown slacks, an untucked light-blue button-down shirt and a green baseball cap.

According to police in the city, which is just across the Columbia River from Portland, Oregon, he has a similar description to the suspect in another frightening encounter on campus on Monday.

In that case, the victim was sitting in her car when the man approached her and tried to speak with her.

The woman opened her door and the brute pulled the door trying to get into the vehicle — but she screamed, spooking the suspect who then ran off, the department said.

He is described as 30 to 40 years old, medium build with a beard and “East Asian or Middle Eastern.”

Anyone with information is urged to call the police department at 360-487-7399.
