STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (KDKA) – A man wanted in connection with a stabbing at the Pittsburgh International Airport Hyatt has turned himself in.

According to police, Michael Furman, 28, turned himself in to police in Steubenville, Ohio Tuesday night.

He spoke with an Army recruiter and said he was wanted by police. The recruiter then accompanied Furman to the police station.

Furman waived his extradition hearing Wednesday morning and is waiting for Allegheny County Police to pick him up.

He’s currently being held at the Jefferson County Jail.

According to police, the incident happened on Feb. 1. The 27-year-old victim was staying at the hotel before heading out on her trip.

Police said the woman was wounded in the elevator, but was able to run to safety when the doors opened.

“He had his hand over her month and pushed her against the wall, told her not to scream, and he lifts up her leg and that’s when she [was] stabbed,” Allegheny County Police Lt. Jeffrey Korczyk said.
