A robbery victim reports being attacked with an eyebrow archer just as she was bunking down beneath an E. Washington Ave. bridge Tuesday night.

The 35-year-old victim sustained minor cuts to her arm, hand, and head and was treated by Madison Fire Department paramedics.

She told police a woman, with whom she has an ongoing dispute, attacked her. She says the other woman was in the company of a man, and the man stole her backpack, which contained her clothes. In addition, she says the man punched her (the victim's) male friend in the mouth.

The area beneath the bridge is where several homeless people sleep.

The assailants have not been located.
