Following an attack on a northern New Jersey mother in her home by an intruder, the Essex County Sheriff's Office is offering a $5,000 reward for information on the man who was captured on a baby-cam beating her.

Authorities say the attack took place on Friday as the woman was watching cartoons with her 3-year-old child in their Millburn home. The criminal broke down the back door and set upon the woman as she made her daughter's breakfast, reports WCBS.

The video shows the robber rush into the woman's living room and then punch her repeatedly in the face as her child sits on the living room couch. The attacker then throws the mother to the ground, continuing to punch and kick her in the head and then throwing her down the basement stairs. 

The victim told WCBS that her daughter "watched the whole thing."
The mother said to protect her daughter, she knew she had to hold her composure during the attack -- which left her with a swollen eye, lip and a concussion.
"I knew that if I started screaming, my daughter would too, and I was afraid she would get hurt. I took it. I didn't cry the entire time," she told News 12. 
She was taken to the hospital following the attack and received stitches near her mouth reports WNBC.
Authorities believe the man thought the residence was unoccupied. He escaped the home with the victim's wedding ring and other jewelry. 
Investigators describe the man as being black, around 5 feet 11 inches in height, and weighing around 210 pounds. They also say he may have a light salt-and-pepper beard.
Anyone with information about the case or who can identify the man in the photo is asked to call 973-564-7001.
