ABC 7 spoke to the victim, “Theresa,” who said she is shaken up and traumatized after the attack.

“She was talking to herself, like talking to a wall, I thought maybe she was drunk or something, so we just wanted to pass through her quickly and when I passed through her, she saw us and said ‘Take off your f***ing mask,’ which is shocking,” Theresa said. “Suddenly I felt my head get hit by something.”

Theresa needed seven stiches after the attacker hit her in the head with a hammer.
