The Boca Raton Police Department continues its search for a man who attacked a woman with a baseball bat on Sept. 18.
    The incident occurred at about 8:50 a.m. in a parking lot in the 900 block of South Ocean Boulevard, just north of East Camino Real. The woman, who was taken to a hospital with cuts and bruises, told police she did not know the man or why he assaulted her, according to Mark Economou, public information manager for the BRPD.
    “We got a description of the suspect and the incident that happened,” Economou said. “That’s all we have right now. We’re still working the investigation.”
    The woman said she was on her way to work when the man attacked her. Her screams alerted her son, who hurried to her aid with a BB gun.
The suspect fled, and police searched for him along Ocean Boulevard as well as above and below a nearby bridge crossing the Intracoastal Waterway.
    A sheriff’s helicopter also circled the perimeter while police scoured the waterway. A shoe, the BB gun and a handbag remained at the scene.
    Authorities questioned residents and workers in the area to see if anyone spotted the suspect, but he had not been located.
