(WXYZ) - A local mom was trying to get home to her daughter when she was attacked by a stranger.
Police are now searching for the suspect who attacked 24-year-old Shannon Mann while she was on her way to her mother's house in Ferndale.
Around 8 p.m., Mann tells 7 Action News she had just left work and was waiting to get on the bus at Livernois and Tireman.
Mann says the suspect pulled up in a mini-van and asked her if she needed a ride. She says she declined and rode the bus to 8 Mile and Livernois.
When she got off of the bus, Mann kept a look out for the man, trying to safely get to her mother's house. Then, a couple blocks away from the bus stop, she realized he was back.
"I felt maybe a pull-back on my hood…and I swung my keys," said Mann. "We both fell…I was finally able to get up and run."
Mann was able to escape and make it to her mother's house.
