Jennifer Leedy told local media she was walking to her car with her two daughters Sunday afternoon in Fort Worth when she noticed a man walking toward her.

"For a split second, split second, we made eye contact," Leedy told WFAA-TV. "I think I looked down, we were talking, and in a split second, I just remember someone just in my face, just this rage in my face."

The man punched her in her face, she said. A witness told WFAA the man who did it ran away laughing with his tongue hanging out.

Leedy said her broken nose will require surgery.

Fort Worth police said there weren’t any surveillance cameras in the area to record the assault or the suspect. The man who allegedly punched Leedy remains at large.

"I feel very, very lucky. Very lucky that the weapon of choice was a fist, and it wasn't a gun or a knife," Leedy told KTVT-TV.
