Police said she was putting her dog in her car, when a car, driven by her ex-husband, hit her and pinned her up against her car.

They say he then got out of the car, went over to her and made threatening statements.

He fled the scene, and police are still searching for him.

They also confirmed the two have kids together.

The victim was then transported to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and later transferred to another higher level trauma center with serious lower body injuries. She is currently stable, but her injuries were quite severe.

We are asking the public’s help in locating the suspect, Leslie Paulson, age 55, of Frankfort, NY.

Police say he was last known to be operating a gold Toyota Avalon, license plate GTG4776.

Call Utica Police at (315) 223-3510, with information regarding his whereabouts.

This incident is not related to the college.
