Millburn, New Jersey police are seeking help from the public in identifying the perpetrator of a brutal home invasion Friday that was captured on a nanny camera inside the home, CBS News reported.

The brazen assailant struck in broad daylight, viciously beating a woman in front of her 3 year old daughter.

“I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would too, and I was afraid she would get hurt,” says the young mother. “I took it. I didn’t cry the entire time.”

Neither the girl nor a 1-year-old boy sleeping upstairs were injured in the attack.

The woman was punched and kicked repeatedly before being thrown down her basement stairs, suffering a concussion and facial injuries.

The intruder made off with several items of jewelry, including the woman’s wedding ring.
