MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Police are looking for a man who assaulted and robbed a woman at Caesar's Park on Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities say it happened between 4:20 and 4:45 p.m. The 38-year-old victim was hit over the head with an unknown object. It knocked her down, and she was taken to the hospital with serious injuries to her face.
"I come here pretty much every day and I've never encountered anything like that before," nearby resident Luke Patterson said.
Police say the suspect also stole the woman's phone.
Some people in the area are now second guessing how safe they are, even in the middle of the day.
"That it's broad daylight, that's terrifying. You'd think with the bright lights and knowing that people can be walking around or in the general vicinity, so that's a little scary," neighbor Danielle Starke said.
Milwaukee Police ask anyone with information to contact them.
