At some point, the 25-year-old man pulled out a sharp object and cut the woman’s neck, the release adds.

"It was a serious wound in a dangerous part of the body, and she was taken to the hospital in serious condition," according to the release. She is expected to survive.

Hours later, the man was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and was booked into the Davis County Jail, said Davis County sheriff’s Sgt. Susan Poulsen.
