A British woman who was glassed in the face has told Sky News Online how she used Facebook to track down her attacker.

Jennifer Wilson, 20, was dancing in the Walkabout bar in Watford, England when a drunk woman lashed out at her, Sky News reported.

"She kept giving me dirty looks and then she pulled me off the stage onto the floor and pushed the glass into my face. I was in shock. I couldn't believe she would do that to me," Wilson said, according to Sky News.

"I didn't realize how badly hurt I was until I saw the blood. I think it's disgusting that anyone could attack someone like that."

The woman ran off after the incident but Jennifer recognized one of her friends nearby.

After searching through 200 people on Facebook she found her attacker, identifying her as Ashleigh Holliman, Sky News reported.

"I went on Facebook and looked at a mutual friend's profile and searched his friends list. As soon as I saw her picture I knew it was her. She is quite distinctive, with red hair," said Wilson, according to Sky News.
