The female victim was treated for a contusion to her forehead. No other injuries were reported. 

The first suspect, who struck the woman in the head, is described as a man between 25-30 years-old. He stands at 6-feet tall, and weighs around 180 pounds. The other two suspects are described as males in their early-to-mid 20's, average height and weight, and both wore dark-colored hoodies. 

The investigation is ongoing.
