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

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

The Athens Banner-Herald first reported the story and said 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. They said the suspect was wearing all black and that her face was painted white.

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.

According to the police report obtained by the paper, “Walker was speaking about several different topics going from one subject to the next not making any sense as to what she was speaking.” The report went on to state that “she continued her confused ranting until arriving at the jail, where a razor was discovered in her purse.”

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.
