The victim advised the suspect was swearing at her about how the vehicle was parked.

Deputies received a description of the suspect and received a radio call from Round Valley Tribal Police who advised they had located the subject and had removed a large Machete from her, the subject was identified as Janice Hoaglin-Wright.
