ATHENS, Ga. -- A woman seemingly dressed like a mime attacked a 20-year-old University of Georgia student as she walked to class Wednesday, according to Athens-Clarke police.

The assault on West Broad Street was stopped by a 39-year-old Oglethorpe County man who saw the attack as he drove by, said police.

The witness chased after the assailant and held her until he was assisted by two state probation officers in the area, police said.

The alleged attacker, 37-year-old Stephanie C. Walker of Hawthorne Avenue, was dressed in all black and her entire face painted white, according to a police report.

The student, who had a bruise to her face, told police she had parked her car near Newton Street and was walking to class about 11 a.m. when Walker approached, began yelling at her and accused the student of watching her on TV.

The student told police she tried to explain that she didn’t have a TV, but Walker began cursing her, grabbed her ponytail, started hitting her and pushed her to the ground.

A police officer spoke to Walker and wrote in his report that she “was ranting back and forth without making any sense.”

Walker was searched at the jail and a straight razor was found in her purse, police said.

The officer wrote that Walker is to have a mental evaluation. She was charged with battery, police said.

“accused the student of watching her on TV”

Well there you go, there’s only so much a person should have to take before erupting like a stark, raving mad, lunatic!

“The officer wrote that Walker is to have a mental evaluation” - I want that job! Never a boring day I’m betting.

The AC doesn’t need a comic section.
