The 32-year-old woman told police she was attacked by a man she thought was an employee at the Orlando park Wednesday evening.

An official with the Orlando police says the woman told police she was waiting in line at Revenge of the Mummy the Ride and asked the man for information about the ride.

She says he asked her to follow him, later grabbing and dragging her into a hallway.

The woman says she was able to escape but that the man grabbed the back of her head and repeatedly banged her forehead into the ground.

Police say they don't know if the suspect is a Universal Studios employee.

A Universal Orlando spokesman says the park is cooperating fully with the investigation.
