Minneapolis police are searching for a suspect they say pistol-whipped a woman during an apparent home invasion in the Kingfield neighborhood.

The incident took place just after 11 a.m. Monday, when police say the armed man assaulted the woman who had apparently walked in on him while he was burglarizing a home in the 4200 block of Blaisdell Av. The victim managed to run out of the back door and was in the alley when her relative showed up and called 911, police said.

The victim described her assailant as a dark-complected man in his 20s, who was about 5-foot-8 with a slim build and who was wearing a black hoodie, according to police. He was gone before police arrived.

The woman received medical attention for her injuries; her condition wasn’t immediately available on Tuesday morning.

No arrests had been announced as of Tuesday morning.
