FARGO - 27-year old Lindsay Samek was trying to play it safe walking home from a bar instead of getting in the car with someone who had a few drinks. But just 3-blocks away from her home, an attacker beat her and left without a trace.


Just before 1 a.m. Saturday morning, police were called to the scene of a woman who was bloody and laying on the ground.

SGT: Mark Lykken said, "It's very unusual that someone would assault someone they don't know, or don't have a reason."
