A 74-year-old woman was in the hospital Thursday after police say she may have been hit in the face with a rock as she walked along a street.
The woman suffered a broken nose and brain bleed.
Detectives are investigating the incident.
The incident occurred between 3:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. near James Avenue and Southcrest Drive.
A police call log indicated a relative of the woman said her mother was crossing the street when she was struck in the face. She was found on the street and taken to a local hospital.
Police said the woman also may have fallen, but detectives are investigating the case as an assault.
No one had been arrested as of Thursday evening.
