Police are looking for a woman who allegedly assaulted a two-year-old girl in the Public Garden more than a month ago.

The girl’s parent told police that her daughter was playing near the Make Way for Ducklings statues around 4:48 p.m. on April 17, the day before the Boston Marathon, when an unknown woman, pictured above, approached her daughter, swore at her, and pushed her to the ground.

The child suffered a minor abrasion on her ankle, while police say the suspect fled the area on foot.

Police say the girl’s parents have come forward more than a month after the incident because they “want the woman who did it to take responsibility for her actions.” Anyone with information related to the incident is encouraged to call the BPD at 617-343-4248, or leave an anonymous tip by calling 1-800-494-TIPS or texting “TIP” to 27463.
