A woman in Lorain was on her front lawn last week chatting with a neighbor.
She had just moved to the area and what better or more neighborly thing to do for a newly arrived resident than to chat with the people on her street.
There she was, making friends, when an unidentified man approached the pair on the lawn.
We're talking about Lorain here, so you can probably guess what happened next.
That's right, the man punched her in the ear.
The woman told police he said, "My bad," then told her he thought she was someone else.
The Lorain Morning Journal reports the woman was taken to an area medical center and cops could not find the suspect.
