A woman was beaten up by a mob and pepper-sprayed during the middle of the day in Old Town North on Sunday, June 6, according to the Alexandria Police Department.

The adult woman was assaulted in the 800 block of N. St. Asaph Street, and was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A 911 call was made in response to the fight, which occurred near Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority properties, hotels, local businesses and the Harris Teeter grocery store.

The mob — more than five adults and teenagers — ran away as soon as police arrived. No suspects have been arrested, and the incident remains under investigation, police told ALXnow.
