A young woman was assaulted in a parking garage as she was leaving the Hard Rock Casino early Saturday morning, Biloxi police said.

Police responded to the second floor of the parking garage at 3:40 a.m., Maj. Christopher DeBack said in a press release.

The woman left the casino elevators and was walking toward her vehicle when she passed two men. One man made a comment, and she "refused his advances," DeBack said.

He followed her to her car and hit her in the face multiple times, he said.

The woman was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her injuries and was released.

The man was captured on surveillance footage, and police are asking for the public's help in identifying him.
