When medics arrived on scene, they reported that the victim had “many lacerations to her face and the back of her head, as blood rushed down her face."

The suspect, later identified as Taylor Wible, ran off when a Longhorn employee came outside.

Police were able to track him down thanks to an employee at the nearby Dick's Sporting Goods who said Wible ran toward Duncan Avenue.

When he was taken into custody, police say Wible had brass knuckles on him.
