Buckhead woman attacked walking home from watching NBA Finals

Police are searching for a man who attacked a woman in south Buckhead Monday night near 25th Street and Peachtree Road as she was walking home from watching the NBA Finals. The Buckhead resident was left with bruises all over her body and staples in the back of her head.

“I’m in pain. I hurt. My body hurts, but I’m not going to add anger on top of that,” the victim told Channel 2 Action News.

The woman said she was attacked around 11 p.m. when a man came from behind near a Porta Potty and used a weapon to cut the back of her head and her ear. He then ran off with her purse, leaving her bleeding profusely on the ground. Passerbys stayed with her until police arrived.

Police cameras captured footage of the suspect who has yet to be apprehended.
