HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Police hope to find a man accused of attacking a woman Monday morning in Lower Paxton Township.

It happened at the intersection of Huron Drive and Union Deposit Road.

The woman told police she was walking in the area when a man ran out of the wooded area and attempted to steal her purse. When she refused, he struck her in the head with what she believed was a gun and caused a large gash on her forehead, police say.

Despite being injured, police say the woman did not let go of her purse and the suspect ran back into the wooded area.

According to police, the woman flagged down a driver on the road who then drove her to a nearby emergency room.
