A 24-year-old woman was assaulted and robbed while walking on the Naismith Park walking trail about 12:30 p.m. Friday, according to Lawrence Police Sgt. Trent McKinley.

The woman was walking on the trail, just south of 27th Street, when a black man hit her in the face, grabbed her purse, and ran off. The woman sustained non-life threatening injuries during the attack, McKinley said.

Police were unable to locate the suspect, who was described as being in his 30s, about 6-foot tall with a thin build and wearing a grey, hooded sweatshirt and grey sweat pants.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call the Lawrence Police Department at 832-7509 or the TIPS Hotline at 843-TIPS (8477).

I think it was 12:30 pm not am ? I drove by there then and there were 3 police cars there and all 3 police officers were out of their cars searching the area. It might be good to state the correct time in case someone saw something ???

A black man that sucker punched a woman on a hiking trail. How mucher lower can you get? I bet he has a rap sheet that shows he sucker punches all his victims. He shouldn't be to hard to track down.

"A black man that sucker punched a woman on a hiking trail. How mucher lower can you get?"

Which part makes him lower-- being black, or punching the woman?
