An Indianapolis woman is recovering after she was assaulted and robbed in an alley on the Indianapolis near southeast side.

The 37-year-old woman was walking in an alley near Weghorst Street just after 8:00 am when she heard a man say, "Hey little girl, on your way to school?" When she turned, the man hit her in the face with a gun and tackled her.

At that point a neighbor came out and chased the man away. No arrest have been made at this time.
