A Midvale man was charged Tuesday with two first-degree felonies for allegedly attacking a woman from behind in October and snatching her cell phone as she tried to call 911.

The woman told police that she was leaving a TRAX station, at 115 E. Sego Lily Drive (10000 South), just before midnight on Oct. 3. She was headed toward a nearby hotel where she was staying. As she approached State Street, the 31-year-old man allegedly grabbed her from behind and pulled a knife on the woman when she tried to struggle free. He then took her into a field, pushed her to the ground and climbed on top of her, charging documents state.

The woman was able to hit the man and knock him off of her, allowing her enough time to get up and run away. As she began walking toward her hotel, she took out her cell phone to dial 911, but the man grabbed her from behind a second time. He allegedly grabbed her around the neck, took her phone and ran away.

The suspect was charged with aggravated kidnapping and aggravated robbery, both first-degree felonies.
