According to a press release from Worcester Police, when Denise Jacobson stepped out of the vehicle to tell the couple to stop hitting her car, a male swung an umbrella at her chin. A female then began to punch Jacobson in the head, police said.

Jacobson called Worcester police after getting back into her car and driving to a safe enough distance from where the attack happened. Worcester EMS arrived at the scene and took her to a nearby hospital to get treated.

Jacobson said she was in the emergency room for nine hours after the attack and needed four stitches.

"I just feel like I got hit by a car today, my face feels all sore and swollen and my neck hurts," said Jacobson, who also has a black eye.

"I kept trying to catch the umbrella for some reason as a reaction, but I couldn’t do it because he was swinging it too fast," Jacobson said.

The suspects have not been found, police said..
