WEST TOWN — Chicago police say a man attacked a woman in West Town after stealing her belongings Wednesday morning.

The woman told police she saw the man rummaging through the car. The victim confronted the man, who then grabbed the woman’s property from the car and hit the woman’s face and eye, Bartoli said. He ran away.

The woman was bruised but she declined treatment, Bartoli said. No one was in custody Wednesday afternoon.
