SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Authorities say a 22-year-old woman was viciously attacked over the weekend when she unknowingly got into a stranger's car that she mistook for one she ordered on her smartphone.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports Monday that the woman got into the back seat of a car shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco after leaving a nightclub. Her name was not released. Her condition was not immediately available Monday.

The driver, a man described only as roughly 60 years old, drove two blocks, stopped the car, turned around and punched the woman in the face and arms. He then attempted to climb into the back seat but she kicked him and got out of the car. He drove off and has not been identified. No arrests have been made.
