Posted: Updated:
Hollywood, CA -

(FOX 11) No knows how the man got into the gated apartment building on Edgemont last night but shortly before 8 o'clock he appeared in the building's laundry room and it was there, police say, that he brutally attacked one of the residents. Repeatedly punching her in the face and head.

The woman reportedly had a cell phone with her and managed to call 911. But the attack continued and at one point she may have lost consciousness and been sexually assaulted.

By the time police arrived the man was gone. The injured woman - said to be in her 30's - was taken to the hospital for treatment.

As for the suspect, police say right now they only have a generic description:

Hispanic - in his 20's and wearing dark clothing.

Detectives with the LAPD believe the suspect is either a local transient or may live nearby.

If you have any information, please call the LAPD'S Northeast station at 323-344-5701
