JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ohio —
Authorities in Jefferson County are looking for a Carrolton man who allegedly assaulted a woman and fled as police gave chase.
Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies received a call Tuesday from a home in the 1200 block of Township Road 267 in Amsterdam.
A woman told 911 she was being assaulted. Dispatchers called back after the line disconnected. Police say the alleged suspect, Scott Morrow, was holding a knife to the victim's throat as she told police not to respond. When deputies arrived, Morrow jumped out a window and ran into the woods. Morrow returned later that evening and again fled when deputies responded. Authorities are looking for Morrow who may be driving a 1993 Black Chevy half-ton pickup truck.
