A baby monitor video camera captured the attack early Friday morning inside a home in Millburn, New Jersey. Police said the suspect broke down a door to get into the house and repeatedly punched and kicked the woman before throwing her down a flight of stairs.

“I knew that if I started to scream my daughter would too and I was afraid he would shoot at her. I took it and I didn’t cry the entire time,” the unnamed victim told News 12.  “They need to help us get him off the street. He’s not just a burglar, he’s violent.”

The woman suffered a concussion and was briefly hospitalized, News 12 reports.

The suspect, who stole jewelry from the home, was described by authorities as black male, 5 feet 11 inches tall, weighing 220 pounds with a salt-and-pepper beard.
