Police are looking for the perpetrators of a horrific attack on a 53-year-old woman in Harlem.

According to police, the 53-year-old woman was approached by a stranger on June 24. He struck her with a baseball bat and knocked her to the ground.

A second man punched her head and body. A third man slashed at her face with an unknown object.

The attack occurred on 7th Avenue around 11:15 pm. The victim is said to be in stable condition at a hospital in Harlem.

The victim spoke to WABC-TV about the attack. "He hit me over several times with that bat and all I could think about was my head getting busted so I kept holding this arm up to protect my head," she said. "A guy came on the side and I just felt somebody take something and go straight down my face. Sharp."

She said that she had seen one of the men using a ladies' bathroom at a bar. "He said I'll use any (expletive) restroom I wanna use," she explained. "I said whatever man." The assault happened after she left the bar.

Much of the attack was caught on surveillance video.

Anyone with information on the attack is asked to call crime stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
