FARGO-A local case of a woman who fought off her abductor will be featured on the Saturday, July 9, episode of ABC's "20/20: In an Instant."

The show will dramatize the 2008 night when Ashley Ware, then a 23-year-old Fargo resident, was abducted by and fought off Vincent Degidio after an hours-long ordeal.

In the ensuing stand-off with police, Degidio was shot and paralyzed. In 2009 he was sentenced to nearly 29 years in prison.

Ware would later move to New York.

The episode is called "He Picked the Wrong Girl," reflecting what Ware told her assailant during the incident, "You picked the wrong girl to kidnap."

Locally, the show airs at 8 p.m. Saturday on WDAY.

Ware previously told her story on an E! Network special called "I Was Held Hostage" in 2011.
