Around 6 a.m., a woman flagged down an officer working an emphasis patrol in the 1500 block of 3rd Avenue.

The woman, who was bloodied in the attack, told police a man approached her at a bus stop, showed her that he was carrying a fist-sized rock, and then used it to strike her in the head. The man then stole her cellphone and fled.
