Police in Dallas are looking into two attacks in the popular Deep Ellum neighborhood on Friday and Saturday mornings. In the most recent attack, a woman walking in the 2900 block of Elm Street was attacked by a large group.

A woman was attacked by a large group early Saturday morning in the Deep Ellum neighborhood in Dallas, and the entire incident was caught on camera.

The attack took place around 3:20 a.m. in the 2900 block of Elm Street near the corner of North Malcolm X Boulevard, according to WFAA.

The 31-second video clip shows the woman approaching the corner, where three people come into view of the camera and grab the woman as she tries to fight back. Seconds later, she is tossed into some bushes near the corner. Six other people come into view while the woman is being repeatedly pummeled with punches and kicks.

Three of the people in the group break up the fight and pull several of the attackers away, while the woman lies in the bushes, before the video ends.

That attack was the second in the past two days, according to WFAA. At about 3 a.m. Friday, less than three blocks away in the 2600 block of Elm Street, Jeremy Logan, a bartender in Deep Ellum, was attacked by a group of people as he walked with two other patrons to their car.

"It just came out of nowhere," Logan told WFAA. "I'm guessing they just hid behind the cars and came out."

The Dallas Police Department has not released any details on the two incidents but said it is investigating both, according to WFAA.

A woman reported being assaulted at a downtown hotel. When police investigated, they discovered the attack started before that.
