A 29-year-old Aurora woman told police she was gardening when a man walked into the garden and suddenly attacked her. He fled west on Fifth Avenue in a dark green, four-door Pontiac Grand Prix after several witnesses pulled into a nearby parking lot.

Police said the witnesses called 911, and the victim was taken Copley Hospital in Aurora, where she was treated for injuries that were not life threatening and released.

The suspect was described as a bald black man, about 30 years old, 5-foot-9, with a stocky build and no facial hair. He was last seen wearing blue jean shorts and a red shirt with white trim.

Authorities ask anyone with related information to call the Kane County Forest Preserve Police at (630) 232-5980. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (630) 892-1000.

An unspecified cash reward is being offered, police said.
