Associated Press Release

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- A University of Georgia student told police she was attacked by a woman who appeared dressed as a mime.

Police said the attack on West Broad Street Wednesday was stopped by a passerby.

The Athens Banner-Herald reports the man who was passing by chased after the suspect and held her until he was assisted by two state probation officers in the area.

Athens-Clarke County Jail records show that 37-year-old Stephanie Christine Walker of Athens is facing a battery charge. The records do not indicate whether Walker has an attorney.

The student, who had a bruise to her face, told police she had parked her car and was walking to class around 11 a.m. when she says Walker approached, grabbed her ponytail, started hitting her and pushed her to the ground.
