The victim was taken to the hospital.
"What we’re telling citizens of course is just to heighten your awareness. Be very aware. Keep your doors locked, especially when your vehicle is not in motion," said Corporal Cameron Parsons with Angleton PD.
A second incident happened Thursday night in the area where a woman was approached by a man but no attack took place. At this point, police do not believe there is a connection between the two incidents.
