Police say they are also looking for the man who was with the attacker.

The attack was unprovoked, police said.

The victim walked out of a Valero convenience store on Feb. 24 and was hit in the head. The victim, a 29-year-old woman, did not report the incident until April 5 because she suffered memory loss after the attack, police said.

Police have still photos of the suspects but no video surveillance because the store only keeps footage for 14 days. But the victim's sister was able to capture photos of the suspects, police said.

The female suspect is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and 130 to 145 pounds, with shoulder-length brown and blond hair. She was wearing a blue blouse and black leggings during the time of the assault and is 18 to 30 years old, police said.
