Authorities are offering a reward of up to $1,000 that will lead to the arrest of the person responsible for the battery of a young woman in Carmel Valley that left her with a permanent injury.

A 24-year-old woman was walking with friends in a parking lot at about 9:45 p.m. on July 19 on the 12600 block of Torrey Bluff Drive when the attack happened, according to San Diego Crime Stoppers.
