Oakdale police are asking the public’s help in locating a woman suspected of assaulting a man with a rock after an argument late Saturday or early Sunday in the parking lot behind the Battered Beaver restaurant and bar.

The woman threw a river rock at the man, striking him in the forehead, police say. She fled the scene, 108 N. Yosemite Ave., in a white Hyundai sedan with paper dealer plates. A photo taken during the attack shows her in what appears to be a Guns ‘N Roses T-shirt.
