Law enforcement in south-central Wisconsin is looking for a man wanted for attempted homicide in Portage.

Police say 37-year-old Canyon Thixton stabbed a woman multiple times this morning (Friday) during a domestic incident. Investigators say the victim was awakened by her significant other as she was being violently attacked with a knife. It is believed that Thixton fled on a black Yamaha motorcycle and was armed with a handgun. He's considered armed and dangerous and anyone who sees Thixton should call 9-1-1. There's a felony warrant for his arrest.
