A Victoria woman is recovering from head and facial injuries after an unprovoked assault in that city and police hope witnesses or surveillance video will help them find the attacker.

A statement from police says the woman was walking her dog in Victoria's James Bay neighbourhood last Saturday night when she was shoved from behind, slamming her face and head into the corner of a building.

As the victim lay on the ground the suspect, described as approximately 50 years old, six feet tall with a slim build and grey hair, rifled through her pockets but didn't take anything.

Police say they learned of the random attack on Tuesday as the woman was seeking more medical treatment for her head injury and they want to speak to anyone who might have information about the case.
