with him in a vehicle."

Silva forced the woman into a detached garage and attempted to push her into his car, Wade said.

"While being threatened with the knife, the victim was able to disarm Silva, jab him with the knife in self-defense and escape," Wall said.

The woman hid and dialed 911 on her cellphone, emerging when deputies arrived moments later.

Silva could not be located. A description of the suspect was not provided.

Anyone with information was urged to call the sheriff's Temecula Station at (951) 696-3000.
