At around 8:10 PM my wife was walking south on Franklin Avenue, and just after she crossed Union Street a guy walked up and punched her in the head. Didn't say anything. Just punched her in the head for no reason. She was on the ground crying "why would you hit me? Why would you do that?" My wife is the most kind, gentle person you'll ever meet. It's unbelievable that someone would walk up and punch her in the head for no reason.
She's pretty shaken up, as anyone would be in this situation. The police came and filled out a report. A couple guys saw what happened and helped her up and stuck around until I got there. One of them hopped in a car with some officers and they drove around the block to look for the guy, but they couldn't find him. Hopefully they will. There are several cameras nearby, so hopefully one of them got a clear shot of the guy's face.
*My wife prefers to remain anonymous, so if any local news outlets decide to cover the story, please maintain her anonymity. Thank you.
