A New Jersey woman was viciously attacked by a man while her 3-year-old daughter watched — and the girl’s baby monitor captured the brutal assault.
MyFoxNY.com reports that the unidentified woman was attacked early Friday in her home in Millburn. Police said the suspect broke down a door to get into the house and repeatedly punched and kicked the woman before throwing her down a flight of stairs.
"I knew that if I started to scream my daughter would too and I was afraid he would shoot at her. I took it and I didn't cry the entire time," the unnamed victim told News 12. "They need to help us get him off the street. He's not just a burglar, he's violent."
The woman suffered a concussion and was briefly hospitalized, News 12 reports.
The suspect, who stole jewelry from the home, was described by authorities as black, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 220 pounds with a salt-and-pepper beard.
Anyone with information on the incident should contact the Millburn Police Department at (973) 564-7001.
