Jackson police and Central Mississippi CrimeStoppers are asking the public for help identifying someone who attacked and robbed a Jackson woman in late June.

The burglary and assault took place on June 28 around 5:15 a.m. at the victim’s home in the 800 block of Adkins Boulevard. Police say the intruder forced his way into Aidan Blasingame’s home and assaulted her while she was in bed. They said Blasingame, 26, was severely beaten with a crescent wrench and sustained severe damage to her face and mouth, and all of her teeth were knocked out.

The suspect, identified only as a tall, thin black male, got away with Blasingame’s keys. The incident is being classified as a burglary/aggravated assault.
