individual with a knife who told him he was not leaving the
mountain alive. The assailant proceeded toward Wooten, who
took off running. In the process of escaping, Wooten dropped
his wallet. He told the officer that he turned and noticed

vehicle was parked. All four tires had been slashed. The incident
