Woman Victim Of Random Assault At 17th & D

A scary moment for a woman living near 17th and D Street Thursday night.
The woman had been sitting on her porch around 11:30 when she noticed someone was walking up the sidewalk to her home.  The 47-year-old woman got up and started to go indoors.  She says the man grabbed her by the hair and she felt what she thought was the blade of a knife against the front of her neck.
The woman then yelled at her brother for help.  The man then let go and ran from the area.  The woman was not hurt but did not get a good look at the suspect.
Police continue to investigate.
