WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. (AP) Police are looking for a man who stabbed a woman and her son as they were walking on a greenbelt trail in suburban Denver.

The stabbing happened Thursday morning in Wheat Ridge.

The woman told police that they were walking along the Clear Creek trail when a man jumped out of the bushes, chased them and stabbed them with a knife before fleeing. A couple who came upon the injured mother and child called 911.

Their wounds weren't life-threatening.

Police say the victim has identified 44-year-old Marvin Gean Wilson as the suspect. Police are still investigating the connection between Wilson and the woman.

Wilson's criminal record includes a guilty plea in 2005 to failing to register as a sex offender.
