PLEASANT RIDGE, OH (FOX19) -

A 34-year-old man is accused of attacking a woman in what police describe as a terrifying, ethnically-charged incident.

Cincinnati police say Rodney Arnold shoved a female jogger into Montgomery Road near Langdon Farm Road, causing her to fall in front of oncoming traffic on May 11.

Then, he allegedly pulled out a knife and brandished it at the petrified woman, causing her to believe he would seriously hurt her.

He "stated that he hates white people," police wrote in court records.

The victim was able to flee and get help.

Arnold was identified based on the description of her assailant the woman provided. Police spotted him in the area shortly after and stopped him, but they let him go without finding the knife.

Not long after, they responded to a report of a man with a knife in the same area. This time, he did have a knife and admitted he dropped it before as police approached and it was his, court records show.

Two days later, the victim identified Arnold as her attacker in a photo lineup "without hesitation," according to police.

He was arrested Wednesday afternoon and booked into the Hamilton County jail on charges of assault, aggravated menacing and ethnic intimidation.

He is held in lieu of $90,000 bond and scheduled to appear before a judge Thursday.
