BELLINGHAM, Wash. —

Authorities have arrested a 30-year-old Burlington, Wash., man hours after a woman walked out of woods south of Bellingham with her throat cut.

Skagit County Undersheriff Tom Molitor says the suspect, who was in a domestic relationship with the victim, was arrested Saturday in Eastern Washington. The man will be transferred to Skagit County either Saturday or Sunday.

Molitor says the 20-year-old victim crawled from a wooded area near the Whatcom-Skagit County line where she had been assaulted and left for dead. A citizen called after noon Friday to report finding her. The woman was rushed to a hospital in Bellingham where she is expected to recover.

Molitor says she suffered severe cuts to her throat and has not been able to talk to investigators. She has not been identified.
