A teenager is behind bars without bail on charges he held a knife to a woman's neck, cut her on the hand, sexually assaulted her and choked her until she blacked out Saturday along a dead-end road in Jackson Township.

The suspect, Alex Lamont Boyden II, 18, of McKees Rocks, Allegheny County, allegedly left the injured woman along the road and drove away in her car.

The victim, also of McKees Rocks, sought help from a passing motorist, Jackson Township police said. She later was taken by ambulance to a Pittsburgh hospital for treatment of injuries. Her condition was not known Sunday.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for the teen, and they were looking for him when he showed up at the Butler County Prison about 10 p.m. Sunday to turn himself in to authorities.
