NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY.COM) -

A robber broke into a home in Millburn, N.J., and attacked a woman while her 3-year-old daughter watched.

A camera on a baby monitor captured the brutal assault.

Police said the man broke down a door to get into the house. Once inside, he repeatedly punched and kicked the woman. He also threw the woman 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."

She suffered a concussion and was hospitalized before being released, according to News 12.

The attacker is described by police as black, 5 feet 11 inches tall, 220 pounds, with a salt-and-pepper beard. He stole jewelry from the home, according to police.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Millburn Police at 973-564-7001. You can also call the Essex County Sheriff's Crime Stoppers hot line at (973) 877-TIPS. Crime Stoppers is offering a $5,000 reward.
