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).

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.

Beware all thin, black men of Lawrence, you will be harrassed and profiled more than ever by the Lawrence police department and one of you may even be picked up and chosen to be the culprit, all to make the LPD look great in the eyes of it's residents. Exception: the thin, built 6 foot men of the KU basketball team. And if one of these players so happens to get nicked just offer the officer KU basketball tickets.

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 ???
