The subject is described as dark-skinned, possibly Native American, approximately 6-feet-6-inches tall and 250-300 pounds. He is further described as "scruffy-looking" with a ponytail.
The subject was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and may be armed.
Police took the woman to the police station for further questioning around 10 a.m.
Officers patrolled the city throughout the day attempting to find the man matching the description given.
