The brutal beating of a woman inside her northern New Jersey home by a robber has sparked fear in a normally quiet suburban town and a reward for information leading to an arrest after authorities released video of the attack caught on a baby-cam inside the woman's Millburn residence.
A $5,000 reward was offered Tuesday by the Essex County Sheriff's Office, which said the attack took place Friday as the woman's 3-year-old child watched from the living room couch.
The graphic video shows the robber storm into the living room and then mercilessly punching the mother several times in the face. During the nearly two-minute video, the attacker throws her to the ground where he continues punching and kicks her in the head. He eventually throws her down the basement stairs. He appears to take several items between the beatings.
The incident took place at about 10:30 a.m. in the Millburn, a suburb of Newark.
