A woman was blinded in her left eye after being struck early Sunday by a robber outside a Little Rock restaurant.
Little Rock police say it happened shortly before 2 a.m. when two men approached two women outside the West End Smokehouse & Tavern at 215 N. Shackleford Road.
One of the victims told police the men asked whether they needed a ride and then attacked them when they said they didn't, according to a police report. One of the men made off with one of the women's cellphones. Police say the other woman was hit in the face with what she thought was a fist.
Investigators said that victim was "hardly able to speak" when she was taken from the scene to Baptist Health Medical Center for treatment.
"The doctors discovered [the victim] to have suffered a blow hard enough that it deflated her left eye causing permanent blindness to her left eye and the loss of her eyeball," police wrote in the report. "It is unknown at this time if she has suffered any additional injuries."
No arrests have been made.
