However Alyssa didn't give in there and began fighting with the much bigger and older man.
She can be seen punching and kicking the knife wielding man.

She had been playing with the slime - and realised (from watching Law & Order), that it was a good idea to smear the slime onto her attacker so that he could be more easily identified later on.
The man then got up from the floor and ran back to his vehicle before driving off.

And after an extensive search he was eventually arrested - somewhat in thanks to the blue slime that was all over his arms.
The man was identified as Jared Paul Stanga.

Her first words were, 'Somebody tried to kidnap me. He grabbed me by my throat, and he had a knife. She said, 'Mom, I had to leave some sort of evidence behind, like on Law & Order: SVU.' We've watched probably every episode on Hulu.
