A woman was outside smoking around 7:30 a.m. when the man approached her, city spokeswoman Kristin Banfield said. He reportedly punched the victim twice in the face, knocking her to the ground. He then searched her pockets and ran away.
The man was described as being Hispanic and in his late 20s. He was about 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-10 and weighed 200 to 250 pounds. He had an acne-scarred face and dark spiky hair with the sides slicked back.
Anyone with information should call 911 or Arlington police at 360-403-3400.
